MassDOT is undertaking the Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation Project, a major project of the Patrick Administration’s Accelerated Bridge Program. The historic bridge is a vital link between Boston and Cambridge, making important regional connections and contributing to the Charles River Basin Historic District.
The three and half year rehabilitation project will address the bridge’s current structural deficiencies, upgrade its structural capacity and bring it up to modern code, including improving multi-modal access and bridge-to-city-street connections to meet accessibility guidelines. The repairs and modifications will be consistent with the historic character of the bridge and comply with environmental standards.
