Quincy city officials are soliciting input from residents on the matter of taking land needed for the construction of a new bridge in Quincy Center.
The city is taking by eminent domain parcels needed for Generals Bridge, as well as establishing temporary and permanent easements on other parcels.
The bridge, also known as Thomas E. Burgin Parkway Access Road, will extend Cliveden Street between Hancock Street and Burgin Parkway, both areas of high activity in Quincy Center.
The Massachusetts Department of Transportation is leading the project, but the city must obtain the rights of way. MassDOT is paying for the cost of the bridge, estimated at $7 million, and will maintain it once it is built, city officials told city councilors during a March meeting.
Construction is expected to begin by the end of the year.
The bridge will contain plaques honoring modern-day generals from Quincy.
Residents can weigh in during a public hearing at 7 p.m. Monday, April 30, in the City Council chambers at the city hall, 1305 Hancock St.
