NH-Maine bridge to be closed for inspection

The Associated Press

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — One of the major bridges between Portsmouth, N.H., and Kittery, Maine, is going to be closed for an inspection.

The Memorial Bridge is scheduled to be closed to all motor vehicle traffic Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The bridge will remain open to pedestrians. Traffic in the river below will not be affected.

The bridge was built in 1923. A task force is looking for a way to replace it.

Tuesday’s closure is so New Hampshire transportation officials can inspect the bridge’s lift machinery. If the weather’s bad, the work may be postponed.
