Alford Street Bridge (State Route 99 over the Mystic River) is being completely reconstructed with a new deck and superstructure. The machinery of this twin leaf double bascule bridge (sometimes referred to as a drawbridge) is being reconditioned with new components and the substructure is being repaired. The rehabilitation was designed to withstand a 1,500 year seismic event.
The City of Boston is currently designing and constructing projects in Boston's neighborhoods that have embraced the Complete Streets approach. To learn more and participate in the public process, follow the links to each project.
