The new Chelsea Street Bridge is shaping up to be an architectural masterpiece that will also double as a mechanical masterpiece.
The new bridge is nearly completed.
Officials are saying it will open some time in March.
When it does, this neighborhood will be home to a bridge quite unlike any other.
The more than $20 million project replaces the aged and rusting hulk that has been entirely removed.
The reopening of the bridge will mark the return to normal of the traffic situation, which has been horrendous at times when it comes to travel between Chelsea and East Boston.
The long-term closure of the bridge has caused traffic backups daily in a half dozen location.
Also, Heightened police presence directing traffic has added many hundreds of thousands of dollars to the overall project.
The end is near.
This is good news.
