  • After the review is completed and the plans are modified to reflect any changes, a Design Public Hearing can be held. This is currently being scheduled for late June.

  • Utility coordination is ongoing

  • Borings are being scheduled for June/July

  • MassDOT continues to work with the United States Coast Guard and Bass Haven Yacht Club to collect data for the marina’s accommodation requirements in order to permit the temporary fixed bridge
