As I’ve previously posted, preparatory work began this winter on the project to replace MassPike overpass bridges in Southborough and Westborough this summer. Two weeks from tonight, MassDOT is holding a public meeting with Q&A on the project.

Anyone who would like to learn more about the “Acceler-8 I-90 Bridge Replacements Project” can join a zoom session on Tuesday, February 9th at 6:00 pm.

Below is the announcement with more information and links:

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) is replacing bridges on I-90 east and westbound over Flanders Road in Westborough and Parkerville Road, Cordaville Road, and Woodland Road in Southborough. To minimize disruptions, MassDOT will use a rapid bridge replacement approach to replace eight bridges over eight weekends. This approach reduces the project duration from a potential of three years with traditional construction methods to just over one year. In advance of the eight weekends, preparatory work will be performed on I-90 and on the local streets. The existing abutments will be refaced at Woodland, Parkerville, and Flanders Roads. New abutments will be constructed at Cordaville Road.

Please join us for a virtual public meeting on Tuesday, February 9, at 6:00 PM to learn more about the replacement of the eight bridges (two bridges per local road) that will take place over eight weekends between June 2021 and August 2021 as well as the preparatory work that will begin in February 2021. To protect the health of the project team and meeting attendees, this meeting will be hosted online, using Zoom. The meeting will allow time for Questions + Answers.
