Overview   of River Street Bridge Replacement - design public hearing


The purpose of this hearing is to provide an opportunity for members of the Hyde Park community to become fully acquainted with MassDOT’s plans to replace the River Street Bridge. 25% design plans for the replacement bridge and the permanent utility bridge which will provide a bicycle and pedestrian connection over the Amtrak/MBTA Northeast Corridor rail line once the existing River Street Bridge is removed will be presented at the hearing.
