The state Department of Transportation is holding a public meeting and Q&A on the Mass. Ave. Corridor Project on Monday, June 16.
The meeting is at 7 p.m. Monday in the Thompson School Gymnatorium, 187 Everett St., Arlington.
At the meeting, MassDOT officials will give an overview of the project and answer questions from the public.
The nearly $7 million Mass. Ave. Corridor Project, which is 80 percent federally funded, 20 percent state, will create two eastbound travel lanes on Mass. Ave. in East Arlington, from Pond Lane to the Cambridge city line, and one westbound lane, among other steps to improve pedestrian safety and beautify the area. Construction is underway and is expected to run through spring 2016.
Millbury-based J.H. Lynch and Sons is the project’s contractor.
MassDOT has hired Nathaniel Cabral-Curtis, of Howard/Stein-Hudson Associates, as a community liaison for the project. His contact info is 617-482-7080 ext. 236 and firstname.lastname@example.org.
