State historic-preservation officials on Friday acknowledged there's no feasible alternative to replacing the apparently historic Shea Circle when the Casey Overpass comes tumbling down, Clayton Harper reports.
Harper attended a Friday meeting between the Mass. Historical Commission and the state highway officials anxious to replace the crumbling overpass with a series of surface roads before the thing tumbles to the ground of its own accord.
He reports the highway folks said they'd mitigate the changes required for turning the circle into a square through a series of plantings of tree, shrubs and bulbs and an "interpretive kiosk" on the history of the site. He's also posted slides from the MassDOT presentation.
