Anderson Bridge Cambridge 2DEC09MassDOT crews will begin road work on the Anderson Memorial Bridge on Tuesday, May 29, at 7 a.m.

During work on the bridge, which carries North Harvard Street over the Charles River between Cambridge and Boston, the downstream sidewalk will be closed and traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction until further notice. Bicyclists will share the eastbound and westbound lanes.

Appropriate signs, channelizing devices and traffic control measures will be used to guide drivers through the work zone. 

MassDOT encourages drivers to allow extra time for their trips and to reduce speed and use caution when travelling through the work zone.

The $19.98 million project to rehabilitate the Anderson Memorial Bridge is funded through the Patrick-Murray Administration’s historic Accelerated Bridge Program to reduce the Commonwealth’s backlog of structurally-deficient bridges. For more information on this project, please visit www.mass.gov/massdot/charlesriverbridges.
