CONCORD (AP) — A new bridge replacing a century-old one in Concord, New Hampshire, is now open to traffic.
The new Sewalls Falls Bridge was closed two years ago due to safety problems. The bridge over the Merrimack River reopened late last week and allows two-way traffic; drivers had to take turns driving across the old 600-foot truss bridge. Several thousand cars had driven through it daily.
A grant from the federal Highway Trust Fund will paid for $10 million, most of the cost. The city is paying the rest.
Officials marked the bridge's return at a ceremony Tuesday.
