PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — There will be a celebration Thursday for the newly built Memorial Bridge connecting New Hampshire and Maine.

The Music Hall in Portsmouth is hosting the celebration at 7 p.m.

Organizers have planned a short film on the old bridge, including footage of it being built and interviews with former operators. There will be a second film on the new bridge, followed by an awards ceremony to recognize the “expertise and dedication” of people involved in the project.

A panel discussion featuring contractors who worked on the bridge and transportation officials will be held.

The new $81.4 million Memorial Bridge between Portsmouth and Kittery, Maine, opened in August. It replaces one that was built in 1923.
