Bridge work

“The temporary bridge (at left) is up and in use and they’re starting to build the demo[lition] platform underneath the orginal bridge,” says John Knowles,r esident engineer for Maine DOT’s bridge program. Demolition on the old Falls Bridge (at right) is expected to start next month and take about one week to complete. No road closures are anticipated as traffic will continue to be diverted to the temporary bridge (at left).
