The bridge will remain open, but motorists should plan accordingly and allow for more travel time, said New Hampshire Department of Transportation spokesman Bill Boynton.
The bridge carries the Cornish Toll Bridge Road over the Connecticut River from New Hampshire to Vermont.
Beginning the week of Sept. 9 repair work will necessitate single lane traffic from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., controlled by temporary signals for up to eight weeks, according to DOT.
Hammond said he doesn't take issue over not being notified, but was curious as to what exactly the project entailed.
Town officials have talked to DOT officials in the past about making the area outside of the bridge safer for pedestrians, but nothing has ever come of that, he said. Again it is a state road, he said.
The 449-foot long wooden covered bridge was built in 1866 and rebuilt in 1989.
