ADT: 77,000

SR: 17%

The oldest member of the list, this bridge in the northern suburb of Revere opened in 1903. Unable to handle modern demands, the bridge is closed to truck traffic. A 2013 state report found that: “As conditions worsen, the bridge will pose serious and unacceptable safety hazards to the traveling public and would place intolerable restrictions on transport and travel.” A proposed $9.1 million bridge replacement is now in the planning and review phases.
