So that leaves out Boston Ave, Main St (Somerville), Winthrop St, Fellsway, and the multiple Mystic Valley Parkway (16) Crossings.

Contrast with the Charles all the way out to Waltham, where I have crossed every bridge except Arsenal and Moody.

Nice summary, -mr. bill. Just his past Sunday I was discussing Metro Boston routes from Downtown, and we both agreed how tedious it is to get to the North Shore and northern suburbs. I now consciously recognize that it's due to the limited bridges over the Mystic River.
