Memorial Bridge lowered for last time, will be floated to Port Authority tonight

PORTSMOUTH - The lift span of the Memorial Bridge was lowered onto the barge &#';Cape Cod&#'; this afternoon.

New Hampshire Department of Transportation officials said the span will be floated up river to the Port Authority pier to be secured between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. this evening. It will likely be floated down to Massachusetts tomorrow.

Large crowds gathered at Prescott Park and whooped and hollered as a warning whistle announced the final descent of the approximately 90-year-old span on Wednesday afternoon.

Portsmouth police were handling traffic in the parking lot closest to the bridge because of the crowds.
