Improvements in Our Backyard

As many Massachusetts beautification projects are progressing all over the Bay State, we thought we would bring to your attention something happening right in our own back yard; the restoration and rehabilitation of the Longfellow Bridge in Boston.

The Longfellow (originally, the Cambridge) Bridge is one of the most architecturally distinguished bridges in Massachusetts. Located on the site of the 1793 West Boston Bridge, this graceful steel and granite structure was completed in 1908, and renamed to honor Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in 1927. The bridge joins Cambridge Street in Boston with Main Street in Cambridge and carries the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) Red Line and two-way vehicular traffic across the Charles River. The bridge presently carries 28,000 motor vehicles, 90,000 transit users, and significant numbers of pedestrians and bicyclists each day.[1]

As you may know, exhaust scrubbers are making an everyday appearance at job sites more and more. This is no different at the jobsite in Boston. After a week of information gathering, we are proud to be a part of the Longfellow Bridge restoration project (alongside Tri State Painting, Inc. of Tilton, NH) by supplying the diesel exhaust scrubbers for the equipment that is to be used in the public areas of the project.
