CONWAY, N.H. — The New Hampshire Department of Transportation will meet with leaders in Conway next month to discuss rebuilding a badly deteriorated bridge on a busy road that's a major connector to Fryeburg, Maine.
David Scott of the department tells WMWV-FM the narrow, 106-foot-long, two-lane bridge that runs over the Conway Lake outlet on U.S. Route 302 is on the state's "redlist." That means it's seriously degraded, primarily due to the corrosive effects of road salt and water. It is a priority for replacement.
Scott says there's no danger that the current bridge will collapse.
Scott will present replacement options to Conway selectmen at their meeting on Sept. 10.
