BATH, N.H. (AP) - The nearly 200-year-old covered bridge in Bath, N.H., is going to be shut down for about a year for major repair work.
The work is scheduled to start Monday, Jan. 28.
The bridge, which spans the Ammonoosuc River and connects West Bath Road with Bath Village, is one of the village's best known landmarks.
Project Manager Sean James tells the Caledonian-Record the goal is to replace some of the rotted parts of the bridge, truss and roof, and put in new floor beams and a deck. He said the bridge will get a new metal roof and some new siding.
Bath voters approved $2.9 million for the project at Town Meeting in 2009.
