Temporary repair work on the the Sarah Mildred Long Bridge, one of three spans that connects Portsmouth, N.H., and Kittery, Maine, has advanced smoothly. The 73-year-old bridge was struck and damaged by an oil tanker last month. "Repairing the vertical and diagonal elements was straightforward, replacing one for one," said Alan Fisher, construction structures manager at Cianbro and lead engineer on the project. In 2015, work will begin on a $160 million replacement for the bridge.
