pedestrian bridge over Storrow Drive. The project proposes to address 
the Longfellow Bridge's structural deficiencies and upgrade its 
structural capacity. In addition, the project will restore those 
elements that give the bridge its historic character in accordance with 
the Secretary of Interior's Standards for the Treatment of Historic 
Properties, and will bring the facilities into compliance with modern 
standards, in particular the Americans with Disabilities Act. It is one 
of the largest projects to be undertaken by MassDOT under the 
Commonwealth's $3 billion Accelerated Bridge Program. The action by the 
Federal agency, and the law under which the action was taken, are 
described in the Environmental Assessment (EA), for which a Finding of 
No Significant Impact (FONSI) was issued on August 24, 2012 and other 
documents in the FHWA project records. The EA, FONSI
