|Three Day Closure Set For Lebanon, NH – Hartford, VT Bridge
Pavement Replacement On US Route 4 Temporary Bridge
The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces a planned closure of the US Route 4 temporary bridge over the Connecticut River connecting Lebanon, New Hampshire and Hartford, Vermont is scheduled to occur from Friday, June 25 at 9:00 AM until mid-day on Monday, June 28, 2010.
Weather permitting, this bridge closure to motor vehicle traffic will allow for the replacement of the deteriorated asphalt pavement road surface on the bridge. Message boards will alert motorists to the bridge closure and detour.
The signed detour on the New Hampshire side of the Connecticut River will re-direct traffic to Interstate 89 (Exit 20) via Route 4 and NH Route 12A, crossing the river into Vermont and onto Interstate 91, to Route 5 and back onto Route 4. The same detour in reverse will be in effect on the Vermont side of the river.
The US 4 bridge will remain open to pedestrian traffic throughout the weekend.
