Tobin Bridge/Chelsea Curves Rehabilitation Project

The purpose of this public meeting is to provide residents of Chelsea and adjoining communities with an opportunity to become fully acquainted with the construction phase of the Chelsea Viaduct Project, set to begin construction in spring 2019. The meeting will focus on the construction phasing and project timeline. MassDOT will present and address specific comments from residents, community groups, and the City’s
government. The meeting will also provide an overview of 2019 construction on the adjoining Tobin Bridge rehabilitation and ways in which MassDOT is coordinating these two projects.

The Chelsea Viaduct carries Route 1 north and southbound over Chelsea between County Road and the Tobin Bridge. The viaduct was constructed between 1956 and 1957 and, while safe to traverse, is structurally deficient with many of its components in severely deteriorated condition. The structure carries approximately 63,000 vehicles per day including MBTA routes 426 and 428. The construction work will repair the supports of the viaduct and replace the structure’s roadway deck.

WHERE: Saugus Town Hall, 298 Central Street, Saugus, MA

WHEN: Thursday, March 21st, 6:00 – 8:00 pm
