The replacement Memorial Bridge is only a few months away from completion, and I’m starting to get a better feel for how it will present from its many angles for the best photos. There isn’t much room by the Portsmouth base at this point to wander, only a little area between the fence on the left and a makeshift fence on the right – but I was still happy with this composition despite some rather boring midday lighting.

The new south span of the Memorial Bridge has officially been floated in and placed. Crews worked during the evening hours securing the new span so that the Cape Cod barge could be floated out at slack tide once enough water retreated. The north Kittery span will soon be under construction, and the new structure will be ready for use by July this summer. The eerie evening lighting and the under lighting on the bridge span make this an amazing scene to see in person.
Watching the placement of the span was a historic event, and although it was a slow process, it was exciting. I’m looking forward to watching the new structure evolve, and to capturing the process.

In 2010, the Memorial Bridge was still intact and standing guard at the mouth of the Piscataqua River. The bridge has since been dismantled and a replacement structure is being built offsite and will be floated up the river in the spring of 2013.

The approach span to the Memorial Bridge stands now as rubble next to the former site of the Pier II Restaurant. The North Tower can be seen without its counterweight in the distance.
