5 photos of the Longfellow Bridge, which has reopened after years of construction

The bridge reopened Thursday morning after a $300 million project that lasted five years.

Pedestrians, cyclists, automobile traffic, and the Red Line move along the newly reopened Longfellow Bridge.

A detail of the new street lamps that line the bridge, which had been under construction since 2013.

The major construction project added bike lanes on both sides.

Even though the bridge is open to cyclists, pedestrians, motor vehicles, and the Red Line, additional construction work will take several more months to complete.

Here’s a view of the bridge while last-minute construction took place Wednesday.
