Public Hearing: Florida Road Bridge – Feb 13th

A Design Public Hearing will be held by MassDOT to discuss the proposed bridge replacement project for the Florida Road Bridge over the Assabet River in Maynard, Massachusetts.

The hearing will take place on Thursday, February 13th, 2020 at 6:00 PM at the Maynard Town Building, Michael J. Gianotis Meeting Room; Room 201 (195 Main Street, Maynard, MA 01754)

The purpose of this hearing is to inform the public of the proposed bridge replacement project and to provide an opportunity for public question and comment.  All questions and comments raised at the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent practicable.

The proposed project consists of the replacement of the Florida Road Bridge over the Assabet River in the Town of Maynard. The bridge will be constructed in the same footprint as the existing span with slight deviations to allow for improvements to the roadway horizontal and vertical alignment. The width of the bridge will be increased for the new alignment, to provide wider shoulders, and to maintain two sidewalks.  There will be a full road closure with a detour for traffic, bicyclists, and pedestrians during construction.

We are joined by town and state officials, civic organizations including Boy and Girl Scouts and the Maynard High School Band. The march loops downtown Maynard proceeding down Main Street turning onto Summer Street and stop at Memorial Park for our commemoration ceremonies.
