The recent record snow has impacted the Casey Arborway project, but to what extent remains unclear.
The Casey Arborway project will replace the Casey Overpass, which carries Route 203 over the Forest Hills T Station area. A new six- to eight-land surface road will be constructed.
The state Department of Transportation (MassDOT) held a meeting last month and laid out a plan to close the westbound lane of the Casey Overpass in late February and the entire overpass by the end of March, in preparation for its demolition. All action was weather-dependent, and since that meeting the Boston area has received more than 65 inches of snow.
MassDOT Michael Verseckes said in an email to the Gazette that the “weather has had somewhat of an impact on work, but at this early stage, we have not forecast any delay in the overall project at this time.”
Asked to clarify if that meant there would be no delays in shutting down the overpass, Verseckes did not respond.
MassDOT will hold another Casey Arborway meeting March 9, 7 p.m., at Jamaica Plain’s English High School.
