Longfellow 'salt and pepper' towers to be dismantled

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) - The century-old "salt and pepper" towers on the Longfellow Bridge are going to be dismantled, but it's only temporary.

MassDOT will be taking them down for storage, cleaning and repair as part of the Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation Project. The work is expected to begin later this week.

Workers will be using a barge-mounted crane on the Charles River to remove the towers in parts and take them for cleaning and repair.

The towers are expected to be rebuilt later this year.
