via MassDOT; I will try to be there to take notes:

Upcoming Public Information Meeting for the Kenneth F. Burns Memorial Bridge Replacement Project

When: Tuesday, July 10, 2012, 6:30 – 8:30 PM

Where: Worcester Technical High School – Conference Center, 1 Skyline Drive, Worcester MA

The purpose of this meeting is to provide an overview of the construction plans and traffic impacts for the replacement of the Kenneth F. Burns Memorial Bridge, which carries Route 9 (Belmont Street/Turnpike Road) over Lake Quinsigamond between Worcester and Shrewsbury, Massachusetts.

Following the presentation, MassDOT staff will lead a discussion to answer questions.

The Burns Bridge Replacement is part of the $3 billion Patrick-Murray Administration’s Accelerated Bridge Program, which restores, repairs or replaces structurally deficient bridges across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The Burns Bridge project includes the complete replacement of the bridge substructure, superstructure and deck.

During construction, two eastbound lanes and two westbound lanes will be available at all peak travel times. Work is expected to begin in July, 2012.
