KITTERY — The public will have a chance to see the design phase of the new Sarah Mildred Long Bridge connecting New Hampshire and Maine.

A forum 6 p.m. Wednesday in Kittery, Maine, will address the new plans. The bridge designer and contractor will be available.

The current Sarah Long Bridge, connecting Kittery and Portsmouth, N.H., on the Route 1 Bypass, is the No. 1 red-listed bridge in New Hampshire.

The $160 million replacement will be located upriver from the existing bridge, is expected to have a 204-foot-long center span. It will be 60 feet above the water, reducing the number of times the span has to be raised by 60 percent.

The forum will be at the Kittery Community Center.
