I know there are other thread asking if this bridge will be repaired or replaced. Here is some current news:
This bridge replacement project is in the early design stages, a process that is expected to wrap up within the next couple of years, according to Jayasinghe. That process will include a public review portion, which has not yet begun.
After the city completes the design process, MassDOT will advertise the project for construction—but, again, that work is several years away.

The North Washington Bridge connects Charlestown and the North End, carries a portion of the Freedom Trail linking to the USS Constitution and Bunker Hill and lies in the shadow of the Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge, making it an important city feature.
As Jayasinghe put it: “We want that bridge to have some personality."
