From the Interstate 90 Advisory Board: A citywide public meeting about the realignment of Interstate 90 is planned for April 13.

State Department of Transportation representatives will address Cambridge concerns about the project at, including traffic and access, noise, visual impact and impact on the river environment during and after construction. They will present the three plans for the realignment of the turnpike and evaluate how each will affect Cambridge. Jack Wofford, a Cambridgeport resident, mediator and former transportation official, will facilitate.

The roadwork, just across the river in Allston, is slated to begin in 2019. This $460 million-plus, five-year project has the potential to dramatically improve the lives of Allston, Brighton and Cambridge residents.

The meeting will go from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. April 13 at the Morse School, 40 Granite St., in the Cambridgeport neighborhood. The meeting will begin promptly and is expected to be crowded.

This meeting will follow up on a March 30 meeting about the project hosted by the Cambridgeport Neighborhood Association. Presentations will be posted on
