The Sarah Mildred Long Bridge is a lift bridge that carries the US 1 Bypass over the Piscataqua River between Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and Kittery, Maine. The bridge is a double-deck truss bridge, with the US 1 Bypass road deck above and a railroad bed below. The bridge was scheduled to close in November 2016 and construction of a replacement, scheduled to open to traffic in September 2017, began in January 2015. A mechanical problem that would have cost $1 million to repair resulted in the early closure of the bridge on August 21, 2016.

dbo:abstract
  • The Sarah Mildred Long Bridge is a lift bridge that carries the US 1 Bypass over the Piscataqua River between Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and Kittery, Maine. The bridge is a double-deck truss bridge, with the US 1 Bypass road deck above and a railroad bed below. The bridge features two separate movable spans. While the main lift span and its towers are the obvious primary moving feature, the second moving span is apparent only to water and rail traffic. On the north side of the bridge, the first non-trussed section of rail bed lifts up and moves south as a retractable bridge, coming to rest on top of the rail tracks inside the truss. This creates a waterway large enough for most recreational boats to pass through without the need for interruption of automobile traffic on the bridge. The bridge was scheduled to close in November 2016 and construction of a replacement, scheduled to open to traffic in September 2017, began in January 2015. A mechanical problem that would have cost $1 million to repair resulted in the early closure of the bridge on August 21, 2016. (en)
