An online community meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 6th at 6:00pm-7:30pm to discuss the design progress of the Northern Avenue Bridge Project. 

Information on how to participate in this online meeting will be posted here ahead of the meeting.  We encourage you to attend.

The Background:

The Northern Avenue Bridge was built in 1908 and is a piece of history currently sitting in the Fort Point Channel waiting to figure out what’s in store for its future. Since 2014, the bridge has not been in use. When the City of Boston planned to take the whole thing down, the Coast Guard warned it could collapse into the ocean. So the City vowed to reconstruct and repair this iconic bridge that connects the Seaport District to Atlantic Ave.

There are a few design options on the table, one with a a bike/pedestrian only bridge, and others that would allow cars to use the bridge.

The City of Boston encourages you to attend.   You can learn more about this project here.
