Four months – 120 days – and the Casey Overpass is gone.

As these photographs show, it is a vastly different Casey Arborway than on May 15 when the bridge was closed.

The Bus 39 berth has been shifted to the upper busway opposite Asticou Road as workmen remove the final pier next to the headhouse.

On Thursday, Mass DOT will host its regular monthly meeting at Curtis Hall Community Center, 20 South St., at 5 :30 p.m.

The three week work schedule, sent out on Monday, will include the removal of all rubble at the eastern (Franklin Park) and western (Arboretum) ends of the old bridge thus completing removal of the Casey Overpass.

Work shifts now to the Forest Hills station and the new upper level busway opposite the Blackwell Footpath at the Arboretum

Drilled shaft caissons in the Hyde Park Avenue parking lot will be completed in preparation for the construction of poured concrete pillars that will support the extended busway platform.

Demolition of the original upper busway canopy, completed in 1987, is planned to begin the week of Sept. 20.

The heavily used Bus 39 was moved to the upper busway opposite Asticou Road in the second week of September. There was no signage only a T employee to give directions.
