|Rehabilitation of Walpole, NH - Westminster, VT Bridge
NH Route 123 Crossing the Connecticut River
The New Hampshire Department of Transportation announces the rehabilitation of the Walpole NH – Westminster, VT Bridge over the Connecticut River will require single lane traffic control by traffic signals.
The work impacting the travelling public will begin April 1, 2017. Motorists should expect traffic signals at the intersection of NH Route 12 and NH Route 123, and at the Vermont approach to the bridge, which will allow a single lane of alternating traffic across the bridge. Drivers approaching the bridge should anticipate slowed or stopped vehicles.
This rehabilitation project includes removing and reconstructing bridge expansion joints, stripping pavement, and repairs to the bridge's deck and piers.
Cold River Bridges, LLC of Walpole, New Hampshire is the contractor for the $811,756 project, which has a completion date of August 11, 2017.
