Merrimack to replace bridge over Baboosic River
“The bridge is not salvageable due to its age and condition. It is an old bridge,” said Kyle Fox, deputy director of the town’s Public Works Department.
Once the aging bridge is razed, Fox said a new, wider-span high beam bridge with a concrete deck will be constructed. He anticipates work to take about eight to 112 months, with a detour route along the Daniel Webster Highway.
The state is expected to pay 80 percent of the project, or about $1.3 million. The town is planning to fund the remaining 20 percent, about $329,408, according to the status report.
