Abstract : The Anchorage Group (also referred to herein as the Group) has provided engineering, architectural, construction and financial consulting services for the renovation and design of the new Charles River Crossing in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In this report the Group provides the client with a detailed design that aims to provide a safe crossing of the river and a way to bypass the major roads for non-vehicular traffic. The Group has also taken into account the need to renovate the existing bridges at this location. This report has been broken into four sections; the first section describes the project background and the general conditions of the site. The second section details the new river crossing while the fourth details the new road bypass. Finally, the fourth section presents a short summary of the Group's proposed design and methods.
