Lead department: Engineering Department Project manager: Robert Puff, Engineering Director Funding: Tax Rate; Bond; State Aid Bridge Funding
The Town of Salem completed the reconstruction of Cluff Crossing Road Bridge over Policy Brook during the 2009 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 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 is situated on Cluff Crossing Road adjacent to the soccer fields. The new replacement structure was designed in accordance with NHDOT Municipal Aid Bridge Program requirements and, as such, received 80% reimbursement on eligible project related expenses.
