Feds shut down lanes on deteriorating Longfellow Bridge

Federal highway officials -- dissatisfied with the state's oversight of truck restrictions on the deteriorating Longfellow Bridge -- shut down two lanes of the bridge effective Saturday, narrowing a major thoroughfare between Boston and Cambridge.

The Federal Highway Administration also asked the state to ban large trucks from the bridge completely -- rather than restricting them only from the inner lanes. As of Saturday, the Longfellow can no longer be used by 18-wheelers and large trucks, though pickup trucks, Duck Boats, and delivery vans could still cross it.

OK it's getting late in the evening as I read this.

I thought the title said "FRED shuts down lanes on Longfellow Bridge" and I was thinking 'oh lord, what did our Fred do NOW!'
