The Sarah Mildred Long Bridge connecting Portsmouth and Kittery, Maine, will be closed for three nights this month.
Eileen Meaney, spokesperson for the New Hampshire Department of Transportation, said on Monday that officials need to inspect the sheaves so shutting down the bridge is necessary because of the prolonged periods of time the bridge will be in either the up or down position. Meaney said routine maintenance will also take place during the bridge’s closures.
