Memorial Bridge Abutment

Today’s post features another shot from the archives from last spring…the setting sun illuminates one of the abutments on the Memorial Bridge.  The seacoast got some bad news recently when it was notified that the Memorial Bridge project did not receive the $70 million in federal funding that it needed to proceed with a full repair of the bridge as needed.  Now the historic structure’s fate hangs in the balance as a study is underway to determine the cost to repair the Memorial as well as the Sarah Long Bridge (Middle Bridge), and the most appropriate outcome given how integral the bridge is to the communities of Kittery, ME and Portsmouth, NH.  I certainly hope it will continue to live what has been a long life.
