Is there a final design for the ball square Broadway Bridge somewhere?

The augur was active at the Washington street bridge this morning. (I watch the construction with my toddler most mornings while we wait for the bus).

Based on a Lechemere "drive under" I can easily believe that Lechmere & Union Square are year away from opening (ok, 15 months)

Arlington -- remember that the Lechmere Viaduct reconstruction doesn't start for a month and will last for a year or so just to get back to where we are today

I'd put my money on 15 to 18 months to get to the point where a train can leave Lechmere headed for Union Sq.

I know this is not the thread for it, but does anyone know why the relatively-new School St bridge has that additional truss above the road surface?
