The Town’s Engineer (Hoyle, Tanner & Associates, Inc.) is developing an engineering study for the replacement of the existing bridge and reconstruction of approximately 300 feet of Christian Hill Road. The purpose of the project is to replace the Christian Hill Road Bridge to provide a structurally safe bridge while minimizing environmental impacts, construction duration, and project costs. The need for the project is due to the structurally deficient condition of the bridge, which has been closed to vehicular traffic since 2014 due to its deteriorated condition, although it is still used by pedestrians.

If you are unable to attend the meeting and would like more information please contact Josif Bicja, PE Project Manager, Hoyle, Tanner & Associates Inc. at (603) 669-5555 (Extension 124).
