The Sarah Long Bridge [The Middle Bridge]

Now that the Memorial Bridge is nearing its reopening date, I thought I’d feature another one of our endangered bridges.  The Sarah Long Bridge aka The Middle Bridge is another linear bridge connecting the communities of Portsmouth, NH and Kittery, ME.  I was out for a sunset harbor cruise with Portsmouth Harbor Cruises and as we were arriving back in Portsmouth after heading upriver, we were followed by a beautiful sunset that accentuated the color and the deterioration of the Middle Bridge.  This structure will be replaced in the next several years, and isn’t quite as accessible as the Memorial Bridge – but it is a critical piece of infrastructure nonetheless.
