HOLLIS - The new Bonny Eagle Bridge spanning the Saco River between Hollis and Standish is now open to two-way traffic.
Crews will now start demolishing the old covered bridge, according to the Maine Department of Transportation.
The $2.1 million project was done by Wyman & Simpson Inc. of Richmond.
One-way traffic near the bridge is expected in the next couple weeks as crews remove equipment and prepare to start the demolition.
Crews will return in the spring to install guardrails and perform landscaping work, according to the DOT.
