Planned Construction Work on Piscataqua River Bridge Causing Delays

Updated 11 months ago

Some planned construction work on the only open bridge connecting New Hampshire and Maine’s seacoast may make some drivers grumble. Traffic officials say a new, nighttime paving project on Interstate 95 in Kittery, Maine is expected to slow traffic for the next six weeks. That’s separate from a daytime project on the Piscataqua River Bridge. Meanwhile, work is proceeding at the now-closed Sarah Mildred Long Bridge, which was damaged when it was hit by a tanker last month. It’s expected to reopen May 25. Maine transportation spokesman Ted Talbot tells the Portsmouth Herald, if the I-95 work is put off, it would be done during a heavier construction time in the summer. A third bridge, the Memorial Bridge, is under construction and is expected to open in July.
