BOW – Just last month, we reported on a bridge or what some might call a culvert in Bow that got shut down.
Crews had inspected it and it was in such bad shape, that the DOT ordered town officials to shut it down immediately.
However, town leaders have approved an engineering study that could have the culvert replaced just about a year from now if everything goes as planned.
The culvert on Birchdale Road over White Brook may seem small to you but it’s a big problems for drivers in the area.
It’s a residential area and the detours can tack on about 20 minutes whether people are headed to Concord or I-89 or anywhere in between.
It was one of three bridges in Bow officials say was essentially hazardous to drive over and it’s one of more than 300 municipal bridges on a so-called “red list,’ meaning it needs to be fixed as soon as possible.
That’s in addition to the 150 state-owned bridges that also need immediate attention.
As far as this culvert, it’s going to cost about $600,000 and the price tag could go even higher if more studies are needed.
