Boston, BU Bridge Lane Opens, December 21, 2011MassDOT crews have completed striping the Boston University Bridge, which carries traffic over the Charles River between Cambridge and Boston.

Effective today, the BU Bridge has reopened to one lane onto the bridge transitioning into two lanes exiting the bridge at both the Boston and Cambridge approaches, seen today at left. Two dedicated 5-foot bike lanes run adjacent to the sidewalks.

The project began in 2009 and has included a full deck replacement, sidewalk rehabilitation, bridge superstructure reconstruction, and a new environmentally friendly drainage system. The bridge rehabilitation has preserved original historic elements of the bridge.   The BU Bridge project is one of the Charles River Basin projects funded by the Patrick-Murray Administration's historic Accelerated Bridge Program to repair and replace structurally-deficient bridges.

Finishing work should be completed by the end of 2011 and tree plantings will be completed in the spring of 2012.
