New Hampshire Memorial Bridge to be replaced

| April 04, 2011

New Hampshire’s Memorial Bridge will be replaced with funds from the U.S. Department of Transportation and the New Hampshire Department of Transportation.

The bridge between Portsmouth, N.H., and Kittery, Maine, is closed to truck traffic. Trucks moving goods from the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard are forced to detour. The overall cost of the project is estimated at $90 million.
