Read our latest policy brief: Fixing Maintenance in Massachusetts

How did the Longfellow get into this condition?

Download a copy of Pioneer's latest White Paper — Our Legacy of Neglect: The Longfellow Bridge and the Cost of Deferred Maintenance — to learn the story behind the shocking deterioration of the bridge and how maintenance needs across the state have been neglected. Also, view a powerpoint summary of the paper.

See More About The Bridge

There's a slideshow to the right, showing various photographer's shots of the bridge and Pioneer has put together a photo-rich presentation that explains the thinking behind our paper and what it means for the bridge and other state assets. (After the first photograph loads, you can advance the slides by clicking on the right side of the image.)

Finally, What Can I Do?

Contact your state representative and senator (find out who they are here) and tell them that maintenance needs to be a priority. Send an email to Steve Poftak to be placed on a dedicated mailing list (not a general list) for information about developments regarding the bridge and state maintenance practices.
