But this being Boston, we are far from done debating the future of this bridge. The city considers its concept as the starting point for another round of public discussions that will begin this summer to hone the design. It’s a process that probably will take until the end of 2019, and depending on the final proposal, construction could be completed in 2022.

    Mayor Walsh commits $46 million to rebuild Northern Avenue Bridge - The Boston Globe
    For four years it has been a barrier you can't cross, but finally a plan for remaking the historic Northern Avenue Bridge over Fort Point Channel is taking shape. The City of Boston has come up with this concept: an elevated, steel-truss bridge with dedicated lanes for pedestrians, bicyclists, and cars.
