The City of Boston has announced a community meeting regarding the Northern Avenue Bridge Project, to be held on June 3rd, 6:30pm at District Hall, 75 Northern Ave, in the Seaport. The City invites you to provide input at this meeting to help identify a preferred bridge type that meets the City’s and community’s needs for Boston’s next century.
Built in 1908, today’s Northern Avenue Bridge was in service for over a century before it was closed to all modes of travel in 2014. The City of Boston has been looking at families of design concepts for bridge types and will present them at this meeting. Improving mobility, honoring history, strengthening resiliency and placemaking of a new destination along Boston’s harbor are four themes that the City will attempt to incorporate, to the extent feasible.
A short presentation will begin at 6:30pm followed by an Open House at 7:00 p.m. where attendees can view proposed design concepts and speak with the project team. View the meeting flyer above and see the project site for more information.
