CRJA is excited to share an update on the North Bank Bridge Project currently under construction in Cambridge, downtown Boston, and Charlestown. Commuters and office workers have surely noticed the spate of construction activity on the banks of the Charles River beneath the span of the Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Bridge. Although there is not yet much finished landscape work to show, the heart of the project is taking shape: fabrication has begun on the 700’ long North Bank Pedestrian Bridge. When complete, the bridge, originally conceptualized by bridge engineers Buro Happold, will span from North Point Park in the west over the MBTA railroad tracks and Miller’s River to Paul Revere Park in the east. Representatives from bridge designers Ammann & Whitney, along with members of the Joint Venture construction team, recently visited Newport Industrial Fabrication in Maine to witness the bridge fabrication progress.

As seen in these photos, the bridge structure begins below the bridge deck and quickly arches overhead through the center span as the bridge passes over the MBTA tracks and Miller’s River. The twelve-foot-wide bridge deck will allow pedestrians and bikers to stroll or ride over the bridge, thereby connecting North Point Park in Cambridge to Paul Revere Park in Charlestown.

Click through these images of the bridge, which is due to arrive on site in Boston later this summer, and post a comment to tell us what you think.

The North Bank Bridge and Park is designed by the Joint Venture of Greenman-Pedersen, Carol R. Johnson Associates, Stantec Consulting, and Ammann & Whitney for MassDOT. Barletta Heavy Division is the general contractor.
