York River Bridge Repairs Starting
October 17, 2012
Portland Press Herald: Sewall’s Bridge over [Maine’s] York River will be closed for a year starting Tuesday [October 9].
Crews will spend the next year replacing the bridge, which has reached the end of its service life, according to the Maine Department of Transportation. The project is expected to cost $3.37 million.
The new bridge will replicate the features of the existing structure using composite materials to extend its life span. A 30’ navigational channel opening will accommodate marine traffic. The new bridge will be 251’ long.
