Route 3 bridge project work continues Monday

Work is anticipated to resume, weather-permitting, on the replacement of the Route 3 bridge over the F. E. Everett Turnpike in Bedford, on Monday, according to the N.H. Department of Transportation.

Work to be completed includes removing the existing bridge, and ledge slope work that will involve blasting, curb installation, islands, sidewalks and final paving and pavement markings.

The bridge demolition and ledge work will require lane closures and State Police rolling road blocks on the Everett Turnpike during off-peak hours for several weeks.

E.D. Swett, Inc. of Concord is the general contractor for the $11.5 million "design build" project, which has a scheduled completion date of July 4.
