Longfellow Bridge to Be Rebuilt in Spring

MassDOT animation of Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation Project.

The Longfellow Bridge, a historic link between Cambridge and Boston, will undergo a rehabilitation this spring, and the state department of transportation released a video outlining just how this will get done.

The bridge will be rebuilt in six phases, shown in this video published by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation.

The video – which MassDOT has set to some nice acoustic guitar strumming – breaks down each phase of the bridge repair in great detail.

Overall, the historical features will remain intact, and the structural deficiencies will be updated and brought to modern standards.

β€œIn particular, the structural steel elements supporting the bridge deck have deteriorated and require upgrading, and the abutments will have to be modified slightly to allow the sidewalk approaches to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility guidelines,” according to a Feb. 27 MassDOT press release. read more
