MassLive: “‘It’s going to be a legacy project;’ South Boston community wrestles with vision for historic Northern Avenue Bridge

But among various neighborhood groups like the Wharf District Council, Walk Boston, The Fort Point Neighborhood Association and six others, consensus on at least one element of the bridge is clear: no cars.
