Thanks to Greg Reibman for sending out a notice to the Newton/Needham Chamber of Commerce about the Add-A-Lane meeting to be held tonight in Needham, updating that community about the closures and re-working of roadways on Newton’s western border that can be expected to occur in the near future. The Add-A-Lane Project is NOT on Newton’s soil, so Newton is not, and has never been, invited to hold public meetings with the MassDOT engineers who are honsho-ing this mega expensive, Federally funded, project. But, Newton has been, and will continue to be, undeniably affected by the implementation of this plan. Highland Avenue will be closed. Route 9 will be closed. Eliot Street’s bridge is now closed. How will traffic in Newton be affected? Who is watching out for Newton residents’ interests? Tonight is the best AND POSSIBLY ONLY time for Newton residents to get answers to their concerns about what is going on with this project! Here is the meeting info:
I-95 Add-A-Lane Highway Project Update
WHEN: Wed. Sept. 21, 6:30-8:30 P.M.
WHERE: Powers Hall, Needham Town Hall
1471 Highland Ave., Needham
