Work on the Sarah Mildred Long Bridge Progressing 

Work is progressing on a bridge connecting New Hampshire and Maine that was damaged by an oil tanker. The New Hampshire Department of Transportation says a barge, crane and other materials are being floated to the site of the Sarah Mildred Long Bridge on Thursday. Damaged steel is being replaced on the bridge, which has been closed to vehicle traffic since the tanker struck it April 1 after breaking away from a pier. With the bridge closed and the new Memorial Bridge under construction, the only bridge between Portsmouth and Kittery, Maine, open to traffic is the Piscataqua River Bridge on Interstate 95.
