WEST LEBANON — Construction this week on the Dry Bridge on Route 12A, also known as South Main Street, is expected to cause “significant” traffic delays, according to an alert from the city. 

Beginning Tuesday and running through Friday, construction is to occur from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the bridge, which spans a railroad right-of-way near the four-way intersection of Route 12A, Main Street, Seminary Hill Road and Maple Street. 

During construction, traffic will be reduced to a single, alternating lane, which will be managed by flaggers and officers. Motorists are encouraged to consider different routes and to allow additional travel time, according to the alert. 

A separate, state-funded project to replace and widen the Dry Bridge is still in its design phase. Construction of the replacement is scheduled to start in February 2025 and to be completed in September 2026.

Additional information is available by contacting the Department of Public Works at 603-448-3112 or visiting the project website at: lebanonnh.gov/1427/Route-12A-Dry-Bridge-Replacement-Project
