The Charlestown Bridge

Charlestown Bridge

Since 1900, the Charlestown Bridge has carried traffic between Boston’s North End and Charlestown. For those who have seen the Ben Affleck movie The Town, this is the bridge the police try to close down to prevent the bank robbers from getting away. It only has another year left. It is scheduled to be replaced next year.

    Thank you for feeding my bridge obsession a little more … and I must nip down and sneak a peek soonly if they are going to decomission it … though of course I now want to know what the replacement structure will look like!

      So now you are talking two trips. =) This one is so classic looking. I’ve no idea what the new one will look like. They built a new one in another part of the city…It is plainer but has some nice details to it. Cheers!
