Built in 1908, today’s Northern Avenue Bridge was in service for over a century before it was closed in December 2014. The City of Boston will be reconstructing this iconic span, reimagining it to improve mobility, honor history, strengthen resiliency and create a new destination along Boston’s shore.
The new design includes two spans for pedestrians and cyclists, plus a bus lane and a waterfront promenade. City officials said the below-level promenade will offer public art, landscaping, seating, and even potentially commercial vendors.
There’s been no update as to when construction will start on this project but hopefully soon!
