Portion of Manchester Trafficway Bridge closed
Manchester Trafficway Bridge from Gardner to St. John is closed until further notice. An inspection revealed that a 125-foot portion of curbing, sidewalk and barrier curb has fallen off.
Public Works Department officials are concerned that the vibration of traffic could cause more damage. The bridge will remain closed until a determination is made as to the extent of the problem or it has been corrected.
