|The Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge, part of The Big Dig Project in Boston, is one of the widest cable-stayed bridges in the world. The Bridge serves as the northern entrance to and exit from Boston. The Bridge is named after civil rights activist Lenny Zakim and the American colonists who fought the British in the Battle of Bunker Hill.|
"The Commonwealth of
Massachusetts is setting a wonderful precedent in naming this bridge
after Lenny Zakim and the citizens who fought at the Battle of Bunker
Hill, I am proud that we are celebrating the ideals of patriotism,
freedom and diversity by dedicating this bridge in their honor. May this
remind us all of the difference that one person's decision to stand up
to injustice and fight for freedom, respect and diversity can make in
the lives of others and in the history of our nation."
Governor Jane Swift at 2002 Bridge
