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 opened to traffic on May 12, 2012, after a $125.3M construction project replaced the previous bascule bridge. The span is 450 feet (140 m) with a vertical clearance, when opened, of 175 feet (53 m). There are two lanes and a sidewalk in each direction.
Mystic River bridge (former)
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. However, this bridge is not the former bridge connecting East Boston with Chelsea.
