Neponset River enters Dorchester Bay from the south between Commercial Point and Squantum Point. A dam is at Milton, 3 miles above the mouth. Small craft with local knowledge navigate to Milton during times of high water.
Three highway bridges, two fixed and one bascule, and a fixed railroad bridge cross Neponset River below the dam at Milton. The fixed bridges have clearances of 30 feet, and the bascule bridge has a clearance of 6 feet.
