Maplewood Avenue Bridge Project

This project is the replacement of the Maplewood Avenue Bridge at the North Mill Pond. Previous planning for this project as an out-year has been expedited due to the critical need for replacement identified in the Bridge Master Plan. The City is working to obtain the 80% NHDOT State Bridge Aid Program funds. If the funds are not available, general obligation bonding will be needed to complete this project. Improvements will include new sea walls, replacement of the existing water main and gravity sewer.

This project is currently in design and is identified in the FY 22 Capital Improvements Plan for funding in FY22.  The current anticipated schedule would be complete design in the fall of 2021 with construction to start the spring of 2022 to replace and repair the existing structure including new sidewalks. This is not a "Complete Streets" plan.
