MONDAY IN CONCORD: SHAHEEN TO CALL FOR FEDERAL RESOURCES TO REPLACE SEWALLS FALLS BRIDGE
U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) will visit Sewalls Falls Bridge in Concord, on Monday, May 11 at 10:30 a.m. to discuss the need for long-term, stable federal transportation funding to replace the aging bridge. Sewalls Falls Bridge, originally constructed in 1915, was closed in December after it was deemed unsafe for traffic. Prior to its closing the bridge’s weight limit had been downgraded to 3 tons, a move that lengthened emergency response times to certain areas of Concord. Shaheen will be joined by Concord city officials to call for federal funding to allow replacement of the bridge to finally take place.
Media planning to attend should RSVP to Nick Brown at Nick_Brown@shaheen.senate.gov.
