BU Bridge, August 26, 2010 The rehabilitation of the BU Bridge connecting Boston and Cambridge shows visible progress during the summer of 2010. 

The $17.8 million project is funded by Governor Patrick's historic eight-year, $3 billion Accelerated Bridge Program.  Ongoing work in the past three months included the pouring of sidewalk and curbing and completion of concrete deck paving.  On the main span of the bridge within the steel arches the bridge deck and sidewalk were demolished and structural steel repairs begun.  The full bridge width also has been deleaded, cleaned and painted. 

Drainage work has begun with the installation of bridge deck scuppers, water quality structures, and drainage pipes on the Cambridge side of the bridge. 

The BU Bridge joins the Longfellow project  among several investments totaling more than $300 million in rebuilding the bridges along the Charles River Basin, also including the Craigie Drawbridge, and the Western Avenue, River Street, and Anderson Memorial Bridges.
