The new bridge will connect the Assembly MBTA stop with the Northern Strand bicycle path.
Roughly 18 months of construction could begin in early 2023. At a press conference with Everett Mayor Carlo DeMaria and Somerville Mayor Joe Curtatone, Gov.

Encore Boston, whose customers could use the path to get to and from the Orange Line, had paid for design of the span.
