Memorial Bridge News
Coming soon! 1st float-in of new Memorial Bridge
The project team is extremely excited to announce that the 1st section of the new Memorial Bridge (the south fixed span on the Portsmouth side) is planned to be put in place by the middle of January, 2013.
Please continue to check back for details on the anticipated time frame that this historic event will occur. The work will likely require three slack-tides to complete the entire process. This is an event worth waiting for.
The photograph shown in this news post is from the original float-in of the south fixed span back in 1922. The process has not changed much! Thank you Portsmouth Athenaeum for providing this photograph for our use. More of these old photos are located in the photo gallery on this website. Enjoy!
The team has worked very hard over the past year to keep the project on schedule. We truly appreciate all the input from the public that has been received from this news blogs, the website, project hotline and from various public meetings and events.
We’ve received input and questions from our bridge fans throughout New England but also from Florida, Minnesota, Canada and the United Kingdom. And, check out our Media Coverage page on this website. The media has been wonderful to us and we appreciate it.
Please keep the input coming! It’s a ton of fun for the entire project team.
