The purpose of this meeting is to present the River Street Bridge and Western Avenue
Bridge Rehabilitation Project, alternatives being evaluated as part of the design process,
and information presented within the Environmental Notification Form (ENF).

The ENF was filed with the MEPA on March 15, 2013. Following an introduction by
MEPA staff and a project presentation by MassDOT, MEPA staff will lead a discussion to
answer questions on the project and to guide public comment on the ENF and
environmental impacts of the project. Interested parties are encouraged to submit
comments about the ENF and the project in writing to the MEPA Office by April 16,
2013. Copies of the ENF may be obtained on the project website at
www.mass.gov/massdot/charlesriverbridges or by contacting Michael Trepanier at
Michael.Trepanier@state.ma.us. Please send copies of comments to MassDOT.

The rehabilitation project described in the ENF is proposed by MassDOT through the
Commonwealth’s Accelerated Bridge Program (ABP). The purpose of this project is to
rehabilitate the structurally deficient arch and overpass bridges to continue to efficiently
and safely meet the needs of the traveling public, while maintaining the structural
integrity, rehabilitating their historic and cultural resources, and improving the conditions
for all users including motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians.

This location is accessible to people with disabilities. MassDOT provides reasonable
accommodations and/or language assistance free of charge upon request (including but
not limited to interpreters in American Sign Language and languages other than English,
