Appleton Bridge Rendering

Appleton Bridge Rendering

MassDOT’s contractor is in the final phase of construction for the new Frances “Fanny” Appleton Bridge connecting the Esplanade to Charles Circle. Crews will begin demolishing the existing bridge at 6:00 AM on Wednesday, August 29.

The new Frances “Fanny” Appleton Bridge will open to bicyclists and pedestrians at 6:00 AM on Saturday, September 1.

Due to the proximity of the new bridge pier to the existing bridge at Charles Circle, WSC must restrict access for safety during these demolition activities. Access between the Esplanade and Charles Circle will be closed in this location. Pedestrians and bicyclists wishing to cross Storrow Drive should use the Arthur Fiedler Footbridge at Mugar Way near the intersection of Beacon Street and Arlington Street or the Blossom Street Footbridge at Lederman Park (see detour map).

For more information, visit the project website. For questions or to report issues related to construction, please call the project hotline at 617-519-9892 or email longfellowbridge@state.ma.us.
