The new Memorial Bridge connecting New Hampshire to Maine is still scheduled to open this summer. Contractor Archer Western has put in the new south span and a concrete deck and started erecting the south tower. Steel tower pieces made by Structural Bridge in Claremont are being erected using a barge-mounted crane near the south span and will take about a month to complete. Plans are for the north span to be completed in March and floated into place at low tide, as the south span was.
