North Washington Street Bridge Virtual Public Meetings
The North Washington Street Bridge Project is entering a new phase of work. In July, traffic on the permanent bridge will begin shifting onto the temporary bridge. The traffic shift is currently slated to occur during the weekend of July 11th-12th with all traffic shifted to the temporary bridge by July 13th.
The three virtual meetings will provide the public with an opportunity to learn how the traffic shift will occur. The meetings will also offer users of the bridge insight into what they should anticipate when using the temporary bridge. In addition, the project team will give an overview of what to expect as demolition of the old North Washington Street Bridge begins. Following the presentation, audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions and offer comments.
Due to the Commonwealth’s response to COVID-19, this meeting is occurring virtually. All residents, abutters, local business owners, and interested commuters are invited to attend remotely. Audience members will be able to utilize the virtual platform to engage with the project team by asking questions and offering feedback in real time.
