The New Hampshire Department of Transportation announces new travel patterns associated with the replacement of two bridges spanning the Route 1 Bypass in Portsmouth.
Beginning at 8:00 am on Monday, January 13, the bridge carrying Islington Street over the Bypass will be closed for replacement. Traffic will be detoured over the new Middle Road bridge for approximately 10 months. Motorists are advised to allow extra travel time and follow "Islington" detour signs around the work area to minimize impacts to local residential streets.
ED Swett, Inc., of Concord, New Hampshire is the prime contractor for the $4.3 million project.
