Bridge connecting Cambridge and Charlestown opens for walkers, bikers

Dozens of Charlestown residents lined up beneath the Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge on Friday as if waiting for a starter’s gun to go off. Some 698 feet away in ­Cambridge, an equally anxious contingent stood ready to charge in their direction.

Between them lay the largest pedestrian and bicyclist bridge ever built in Boston, a $10 million, steel-piped architectural wonder dubbed the North Bank Bridge.
