LEBANON, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire Department of Transportation says work is starting on the replacement of the U.S. Route 4 bridge over the Connecticut River between Lebanon and Hartford, Vt.
Initial work will involve demolition of the previous bridge, which has been closed to traffic since December 2009.
In addition, maintenance work on the existing temporary bridge that remains open to traffic is scheduled for next week, on Tuesday and Wednesday. The work will require daytime alternating one-way traffic on both days. Some traffic delays should be expected.
The new steel beam and concrete deck bridge will be built on the alignment of the old bridge being demolished.
CPM Constructors, of Freeport, Maine is the general contractor for the $10.7 million project, which is expected to be completed in June 2016.
