Column: Answering environmental misinformation

(Continued)

CEA has agreed to pay for any landfill-related construction work to the extent that it causes the project cost to exceed the MassDOT budget. Under no set of circumstances will Beverly taxpayers be responsible for any costs associated with the landfill.

In the meantime, MassDOT has asked the project engineer to evaluate an alternate design to be built on the site of the current connector road. There is no question among the project engineers that this would be an inferior design that would have less capacity and would not manage traffic as effectively as the relocated connector road. Relocating the connector road is clearly viewed as the superior, preferred design. However, in the unlikely event that the relocated connector road cannot be built due to insurmountable engineering or cost issues, then this alternate design should be considered as a viable (though inferior) fallback option. For now, however, we are all focused on the preferred design option that does the best job of managing existing and future traffic, which is to relocate the connector road according to the design that has been developed by MassDOT and the project engineers over the past two years.
