A independent inspection shows the century-old Longfellow bridge is in somewhat poorer condition than an earlier state study indicated. The state disputed the findings and refused to release the report until the Boston Globe filed a formal Freedom of Information Act request. The state said it is going ahead with recommended repairs even though it disagrees with the report’s conclusions.
