Cambridge Street overpass in sorry shape

Officials say the crumbling Cambridge Street overpass, which crosses over the Massachusetts Turnpike in Allston, could take years to repair.

Chunks of concrete have been falling onto cars driving along the Mass Pike and passing commuter trains are forced to take it slow while passing beneath the roadway.

For now, a metal plate has been placed over a hole in the sidewalk on the Allston-bound side of the bridge, and one of the three traffic lanes has been isolated by jersey barriers to handle foot traffic.

Construction on a replacement for the 46-year-old bridge is scheduled to begin next Spring.

    If Mitwit Romney was still around, he’d be blaming Amorello.
