The City of Boston has approved the R+P preliminary design of the new North Washington Street/Charlestown bridge over the Charles River in Boston. The $100 million bridge will include wide sidewalks - 12' and the first cycle track - 7’ in width on a bridge in the City of Boston, Massachusetts. Almost 40% of the width of the bridge will be dedicated to pedestrians and bicyclists which will make it truly multimodal and one of the most innovative bridges in the US in this respect. The design of the piers and overall architecture is inspired by the nearby Zakim Bridge without mimicking it to complement the iconic bridge in which Miguel Rosales was also involved as bridge architect. The new bridge includes curved overlooks at the center span with seating, a shade structure and plantings for users to enjoy views of the harbor and the city.
