A Live Virtual Design Public Hearing will be hosted on the MassDOT website below to present the design for the proposed Route 126 over MBTA project in Lincoln, MA.


The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed Route 126 over MBTA project. All views and comments submitted in response to the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.


The proposed project consists of replacing the existing Route 126 bridge over the MBTA tracks. Construction will take place in stages so a detour will not be required.

Bike and Ped accommodations have been provided in accordance with applicable design guides.
