The former B-3 Police Station slated for demolition.


Members of the community interested in the upcoming demolition of the former B-3 Police Station on Morton Street will have their chance to find out more about the project Tuesday.

A public meeting has been set for Mar. 19 from 6p.m. – 7:30p.m. at the Mattapan Branch Library.

Representatives from the city of Boston, MassDOT, and the demolition contractor will be on hand to talk about the work slated for the building at 872 Morton St. and how it might impact nearby residents.

The station, once home to the Boston Police Department, is being taken down to create a staging area for MassDOT’s Morton Street bridge replacement project.

Officials with the city told Boston.com in February that the building, which was closed in 1981, could be completely torn down by August.

For more information about Tuesday’s meeting call the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services at (617) 635-3485.
