Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. School Auditorium

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.
