The Chelsea Street Bridge is a vertical-lift bridge that carries Chelsea Street between East Boston, Massachusetts, and Chelsea, Massachusetts, over the Chelsea Creek. It reopened to traffic on May 12, 2012, after a $125.3M construction project replaced the previous drawbridge. The span is 450 feet with a vertical clearance of 175 feet. There are two lanes and a sidewalk in each direction.[1]

Mystic River bridge (former)[edit]

Another bridge referred to by the same name was replaced by the Tobin Bridge, formerly connecting Chelsea Street in Charlestown, Massachusetts (another neighborhood of Boston) with the city of Chelsea.
