Not to drift too far from the debacle with the bridge construction, but does anyone know how long the N. Washington/LoveJoy Wharf stairs have been open? When I stopped at Night Shift last summer, they were still closed. I just happened to notice during some b-roll footage prior to a Celtics game last week that the stairs were open and being heavily used.
I used them back in the fall when I was walking around before a Bruins game.

It's really depressing to see the word repair show-up, not once, but twice, on a description of new construction activities.

Context is everything.
The new (hotness) design will connect to the pretty (old hotness) granite abutments, but they're a little shaky and need some beef.
I'd be more worried if the word repair shows up when we're talking about spans, tubs, welds, or pilings.
Slowly, surely this will get done... and thankfully it's not getting done at a Spanish pace!

The old N. Washington St. Bridge was built about the same time as the Longfellow Bridge, which was recently completely repaired and refurbished. I look at this N. Wash project as similar to the Longfellow project, with obviously a lot more replacement than the Longfellow, but still having major components of the old bridge's approaches (walls, etc.) that need to be refurbished.
