Secretary of State William Galvin, who serves as chairman of the Massachusetts Historical Commission, said Harvard’s plans to expand the bridges and bury portions of Storrow Drive could run into trouble.
He noted that the Charles River’s basin is protected and that he’ll closely review Harvard’s plans. He said he’s worried that the plan could “adversely affect” the river.
“I’m very concerned,” said Galvin.
“If they’re treating the river like it’s their moat, I’ve got news for them: They don’t own the river.”
