Longfellow Bridge

For the past five years, our beloved Longfellow Bridge has been under construction due to a much needed update. I have worked with stake holders like MassDOT, the MBTA, cyclist groups like the Boston Cyclist Union, pedestrian groups like Walk Boston, and many more of the thousands of commuters that would rely on this bridge daily to get to a good final result. Below is a run down of the process, concerns that came up, and ways by which my colleagues and I advocated to amplify those voices.
