Photo 4(8)MassDOT’s Longfellow Bridge Project continues to show progress in Spring 2016.  Structural steel beams are now set to support the future concrete decking and inbound MBTA Red Line tracks at Span 1 on the Boston end of the bridge.

In late July 2016, contractors expect to begin Stage 4 of construction. In this phase, inbound vehicles will be shifted to the new roadway on the upstream side of the bridge. Bicyclists, both inbound and outbound, will continue to use the sidewalk on the upstream side of the bridge and pedestrians will continue to use the sidewalk on the downstream side. Stage 4 work to rehabilitate the bridge under the old outbound Red Line tracks will take approximately eight months to complete. View the Stage 4 Graphic for travel space configuration along the Longfellow Bridge.

Esplanade Pedestrian Ramp

In addition, as part of the project, steel rebar is now being shaped to create the form work for the ramp of the new pedestrian bridge on the Esplanade.

Please visit the project website for the latest construction and traffic information.
