The Anderson Memorial Bridge, popularly known as the “Larz Anderson Bridge,” is a vital transportation link connecting the cities of Cambridge and Boston and the primary connection between two Harvard University campuses. The 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.
MassDOT is carrying out the rehabilitation project as part of the Patrick-Murray Administration's eight-year, $3 billion Accelerated Bridge Program, which is repairing or replacing structurally-deficient bridges across the Commonwealth.
