Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation
Crews upgraded the bridge’s structural capacity, created bicycle lanes, replaced Red Line tracks, and improved bridge-to-city-street accessibility connections.
On some weekends during construction, shuttles replaced Red Line service between Kendall, Charles/MGH, and Park Street.
The historic steel and granite bridge, originally built in 1907, had not undergone a major rehabilitation since 1959.
