Canaan Street Bridge: One Lane for Three Months

Canaan — Another day, another blog post about bridge construction. This time it’s in Canaan, as state officials announced today that the Canaan Street bridge would be reduced to one lane of traffic for three months as workers replace the deck.

A crew from the New Hampshire Department of Transportation begins work tomorrow (Wednesday, Jan. 9) on the $200,000 project. Construction will force drivers through one-way alternating traffic controlled by stop and yield signs.

The bridge, which carries the road over the Mascoma River near the intersection of Switch and River roads, was built in 1936.
