Last “Grounding McGrath” Working Group Meeting

The project team has announced that the last “Grounding McGrath Working Group” meeting will be held on March 24th at 6pm in the library at the East Somerville Community School on 50 Cross St. Formed by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) in late 2014, the working group has been meeting regularly to discuss the planned redesign and overhaul of the McGrath Highway corridor in Somerville. The project would remove the McCarthy Overpass and transform McGrath into a more connected, accessible, and livable urban boulevard.

An early design from the 2013 Grounding McGrath report shows the McGrath and Washington St. intersection transformed by the removal of the McCarthy Overpass.
