Repair spans congestion, confusion

The state is holding a groundbreaking ceremony for the Anderson Memorial Bridge this week, but drivers who have encountered recent congestion and confusion know that construction staging and lane closures are already in place.

The Anderson, heavily traveled if not widely identifiable by name, is the latest in a series of Charles River crossings to be repaired under the state’s $3 ­ billion Accelerated Bridge Program, following the Boston University Bridge. It’s the one that connects Harvard Square and John F. Kennedy Street with Allston’s North Harvard Street.
