NH Piscataqua River Bridge Span Removed
February 13, 2012
SeacoastOnline: It was a long and cold wait, but those who got to see firsthand the float-out of the Memorial Bridge’s center span Wednesday night said it was well worth it to watch history unfold.
After hours of painstaking preparation, the lift span of the Memorial Bridge floated free of the fixed bridge Wednesday night and to the Port of New Hampshire. Hundreds turned out at Prescott Park and The Marina at Harbor Place, many with cameras in hand to capture the landmark event, though not all lasted until the pivotal moment at 10:21 p.m.
