about the projectsBRIDGE AESTHETICS

Over the course of the project, MassDOT has worked with the community and local officials to develop an appearance for the new Fore River Bridge that is aesthetically appealing and responsive to the span's surroundings.  Clicking on the views below will enlarge them.

The following four renderings present the latest changes to the structure's appearance as developed by the design/build team.  The changes shown in these renderings (January, 2013) do not change the bridge's appearance in terms of overall size or alignment, but improve the structure in terms of constructability. Such changes are normal and an expected part of the design/build process.  All such changes proposed by the design/build team are reviewed and subject to approval by MassDOT.

The following thirteen renderings were presented to the community at project's 25% design public hearing on February 9th, 2012.  They remain generally correct in terms of perspective, placement of the bridge within the corridor, and how it would appear from various points in the abutting communities of Quincy and Weymouth.
