Route 3A, Quincy/Weymouth, Massachusetts
The Fore River Bridge on Route 3A is a vital link for commuters in Boston’s South Shore community. Originally built in 1932, MassDOT sought to replace the structure with a permanent movable bridge that accommodates for all modes of transportation.
HSH was tasked with developing a traffic management plan that minimizes disruption to commuters and the community during the construction period. Our plan evaluated automotive, bicycle, and pedestrian circulation conditions surrounding the bridge. We also facilitated an extensive public involvement program with the goal of building public trust in the project and the team delivering it. The design achieved general public consensus and is now under construction with an expected completion in 2016.
