Northern Avenue Bridge Competition

With the rapid growth of Downtown and the South Boston Waterfront, Boston needs a Northern Avenue Bridge—one that enhances our mobility, celebrates our history, and creates a destination for the next 100 years. What the next iteration of the bridge looks and feels like is a question that remains to be answered, but the City of Boston and Mayor Martin J. Walsh are committed to the project.
