Repairs for Allston-Cambridge river bridges?

The state seems to be getting serious about fixing bridges across Massachusetts including the ones that are literally crumbling in our neighborhood. The Accelerated Bridge plan lists the following:

Description Preliminary Estimate Design Start Design Complete Start of Construction End of Construction
BOSTON- DECK AND SUBSTRUCTURE REPAIRS, B-16-011, NORTH HARVARD STREET OVER
CHARLES RIVER (LARZ ANDERSON BRIDGE)
$15,870,000 Winter-2009 Winter-2010 Winter-2010 Summer-2014
BOSTON- DECK AND SUBSTRUCTURE REPAIRS, B-16-010, WESTERN AVENUE OVER CHARLES RIVER (WESTERN AVENUE BRIDGE) $6,770,000 Winter-2009 Winter-2010 Winter-2010 Summer-2011
BOSTON- DECK AND SUBSTRUCTURE REPAIRS, B-16-006, CAMBRIDGE STREET OVER CHARLES RIVER (RIVER STREET BRIDGE) $15,930,000 Summer-2009 Winter-2011 Winter-2011 Summer-2014

If these repairs actually happen it will be a great opportunity to both repair these bridges and make additional improvements to get pedestrians, bikes, and cars from one side of the river to the other in a much better fashion than the current bridges do.
