Anderson Bridge Cambridge 2DEC09 A public meeting for the proposed rehabilitation of the Anderson Memorial Bridge has been scheduled for the following time and location:

Thursday, July 22, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. School Auditorium
100 Putnam Avenue, Cambridge

The purpose of this meeting is to provide an update on the design of the proposed rehabilitation of the historic Anderson Memorial Bridge and answer questions and gather public comments.  The design team will provide further detail regarding the environmental review and design processes.    

The project will repair deteriorating elements of the bridge, upgrade structural capacity and improve local street connections and accessibility.  The proposed rehabilitation will respect the historic status of this landmark structure and preserve as many of the original elements as possible.  Built in 1915, the Anderson Memorial Bridge is listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places as an integral and contributing component of the Charles River Basin Historic District.  It is a key Charles River crossing between Cambridge and Boston and the primary connection between two Harvard University campuses. 

If you have questions or would like more information about the project, please contact Tracy Osimboni, Project Manager, 617-973-8074 or Tracy.Osimboni@state.ma.us.  To be added to the project email or US Mail distribution lists, please contact Stephanie Boundy, 617-973-8049 or Stephanie.Boundy@state.ma.us.
