Event Description

The MBTA will replace a bridge which carries the Needham Commuter Rail Line over Robert Street in Roslindale (near Roslindale Village Station). Built in 1898 and rehabilitated in 1985, the bridge is due for replacement.

Construction is planned for later this year, and we invite you to attend a public meeting to view the most current design plans, to share your input, and to learn about plans to mitigate potential construction impacts.

For project questions or comments, please email Project Manager Mike Ryan at

Please share this information with anyone you think will be interested in the project.
