New Span Up By December


"Another link in the Massachusetts Highway System" will be forged by the middle of December when the Eliot Bridge is completed. This new span over the Charles is located just below the Cambridge Hospital, across from the House football fields.

No traffic will be able to cross the bridge for some time after that, however, as the contract bidding for the approaches has just opened this week.

The bridge was scheduled for completion sometime in November, but L. S. Langstroth, president of Langstroth-Monroe Inc., which is building the bridge, claims that no unforeseen problems came up. The delay was due to shortages of material, he said.

Langstroth took a Harvard course in Soil Mechanics in 1938 under Arthur Casagrande, Gordon McKay Professor of Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering.
