Memorial Bridge Information Center

In an effort to keep the Kittery, ME and Portsmouth, NH communities apprised of all information related to the Memorial Bridge project, we provide the following sections. If you do not find the information that you are looking for on the pages below or elsewhere on the website, please contact us.

Shuttle Service

To offset the inconvenience of having the bridge unusable while under construction, there is a shuttle service that runs 20 hours per day between Kittery and Portsmouth, beginning at 5 a.m. and continuing to 1 a.m. Pick-up locations: In Kittery, ME, just north of Warren’s Restaurant on Water Street; and in Portsmouth, NH, at the intersection of Daniel and Bow Streets. Learn more about the Memorial Bridge shuttle service.
