Longfellow Bridge Restoration
This project includes the restoration and rehabilitation of one of the most architecturally distinguished bridges in New England, the re-integration of the bridge into the city fabric, and the introduction of state of the art historically sensitive lighting and railings. The restored bridge will be reinforced to comply with current structural codes while preserving its architectural appearance and detailing. The bridge, completed in 1908, is multi-modal; accommodating MBTA light rail, motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists. The Longfellow Bridge is considered the most important historic bridge in the City of Boston and is also part of the Charles River Basin Historic District.
