The replacement of the Charlestown/North Washington Street bridge across Boston Harbor has been approved by the directors of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation. The lowest bid submitted by ACS/JF White Contracting was for a total of $177 million. The new bridge was designed by Miguel Rosales, President of Rosales + Partners in collaboration with Benesch. The signature bridge will include wide sidewalks, the first cycle track system in the city of Boston, a bus dedicated lane and landscaping separating pedestrians/bicyclists from vehicular traffic. Designed to complement the nearby Zakim Bridge, the new bridge also includes Y shaped piers and an attractive curved trellis that visually relates to the iconic bridge in which Rosales was also involved. It is expected that the new bridge will completed in 2023.
