It's not often that we have a chance to help make an improvement in our neighborhood that our grandchildren will enjoy. But the reconstruction of the Charles River bridges is one of those special opportunities - these 75+ year old bridges are getting major repairs for the first time and it will probably be another 75 years before they are rebuilt again.
So wouldn't it be great to do better than just rebuild the existing bridges and promote public health and safety at the same time? The Anderson bridge, which connects North Harvard St in Allston with JFK Street in Cambridge, can be rebuilt with an underpass that will allow walkers, joggers, rollerbladers, and bicyclists to travel without interruption along the river instead. Sort of like the Eliott Bridge underpass but with better lighting, better drainage, and better design!
