Last pieces of Concord's 101-year-old Sewell Falls Bridge taken down in renovation project


CONCORD - The renovation of the historic Sewell Falls Bridge continues as the final truss from the 101-year-old former bridge was removed Thursday.

According to the Concord Monitor, the final piece of the last standing truss from the older bridge has been removed.

The new, two-lane bridge is expected to open this year, while the former, single-lane bridge that connected Fisherville Road to East Concord was shut down in 2014 due to deterioration.

After engineers found that some 80 percent of the steel would need to be replaced, plans to construct a new one totaling $11 million mostly from a federal grant was necessary.

The new bridge will have two piers in the river and will be higher on the eastern end, eliminating a dip in the road.
