Work resuming on Route 101 bridge repairs in Amherst
Work has resumed on Route 101 in Milford and Amherst as part of a $6 million rehabilitation project. Four bridges in Amherst are in line for repairs this year.
Seven bridges over roads and the Souhegan River are being rehabilitated as part of the project, which began last year.
It was put on hold over the weekend but work resumed as of Monday , according to the New Hampshire Department of Transportation.
During work, speeds on the bridges will be reduced to 45 mph, and occasional lane closures and nighttime paving work will occur, starting next month.
Other work includes drainage and guardrail improvements.
Brox Industries of Dracut, Mass., is the general contractor, and George Cairns and Sons of Windham is the bridge rehabilitation contractor.
The project is slated to be done by fall.
