McCarthy Overpass Meeting
May 31, 2012 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Do you live in or near Somerville and have to walk, bike, take transit, or drive through the McGrath Corridor to get to work, class, or do errands?
For more than a year, we have been re-envisioning what the corridor could look like. Today we have the opportunity to change one important part, the McCarthy Overpass. Now is the time to take action!
On Thursday, May 31st, there will be a public meeting about the McCarthy Overpass. We need you to attend and speak up!
It will take place Thursday, May 31st from 6-8 pm at the Argenziano School Cafetorium, 290 Washington St, Somerville. Come early between 4:30-6:00 pm for the LivableStreets McCarthy Overpass meet up to learn more about the “Remove McGrath Campaign” from LivableStreets Ambassadors and neighborhood groups.
MassDOT could repair the McCarthy Overpass section of the McGrath Highway as a temporary fix, keeping a dangerous highway that acts as barrier in place for at least another 10 years. Or MassDOT could spend the $11 million to remove the highway and reconnect Somerville neighborhoods and business districts. Watch this video to find out what people are saying about the McCarthy Overpass.
Do you want the McGrath corridor to look like this?
Come to the meeting and share your ideas!
