Bluff Street Bridge Replacement (Bridge Number 094/119)
Lead department: Engineering Department Project manager: Robert Puff, Engineering Director Funding: Tax Rate; Bond; State Aid Bridge Funding
The Town of Salem completed reconstruction of the Bluff Street Bridge over Hitty Titty Brook during the 2013 construction season. Prior to replacement the existing bridge was on the NH Department of Transportation (NHDOT) "red list". The project consisted of full replacement of a metal pipe arch structure with a precast concrete rigid frame structure. The project also involved "full box" reconstruction of the adjacent roadway including new pavement, drainage improvements, and guardrail replacement. The project begins at the Millville St intersection and extends approximately 200-feet beyond the bridge.
