Longfellow Bridge 2MassDOT has scheduled a Public Information Meeting for the Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation Project as follows:

Wednesday, July 10, 7:00-9:00 pm, MIT, Building E25, Room 111, 45 Carleton Street, Cambridge

Complete rehabilitation of the iconic Longfellow Bridge will begin this summer. The meeting will include presentation of details on Phase 1 of the Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation Project and the Traffic Stage 1 shift to be implemented in mid-July by the design/build (D/B) team, White-Skanska-Consigli (WSC).

Stage 1 work will close the west side of the bridge for construction and shift Boston bound traffic to the east side. Cambridge bound traffic will be detoured using a signed route from Charles Circle to Land Boulevard using Leverett Circle and Monsignor O’Brien HighwayPedestrian and bicycle access and MBTA Red Line service will be maintained throughout construction.

Staff from WSC will describe traffic monitoring and management plans at the meeting.Following the presentation, MassDOT and D/B staff will lead a discussion to gather public comments and answer questions.

The rehabilitation project will address the bridge’s current structural deficiencies, upgrade its structural capacity and bring it up to modern code, including improved multimodal access and bridge-to-city-street connections to meet accessibility guidelines. The repairs and modifications will be consistent with the historic character of the bridge and comply with environmental standards. The end result will be a signature bridge ready for many more years of service.
