The Massachusetts Department of Transportation will take one more step toward the demolition of the crumbling Casey Overpass.
State officials will host a walkthrough of the Casey site and public meeting today at the Boston English High School auditorium, 144 McBride St. The site walkthrough begins at the north entrance to the Forest Hills MBTA station at 3 p.m., and the meeting begins at 6 p.m.
MassDOT filed an environmental notification form in the Massachusetts Environmental Protection Act Office in November, according to a MassDOT official.
Due to the impact of the proposed Casey Overpass demolition, albeit slight, the state had to file the notification by Nov. 15, according to the Jamaica Plain Gazette. Nine area trees will be cut, according to the newspaper. The state must host a walkthrough and public meeting along with the filing.
The Casey Arborway – a network of roads at street-level – is set to replace the current overpass, though opponents want to see the overpass demolished and then rebuilt.
