FRANCONIA, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire Department of Transportation is holding a public meeting to discuss the rehabilitation or replacement of a “Red List” bridge in Franconia.

The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, April 29 at 6:30 p.m. at Franconia Town Hall.

The stone bridge that carries Route 18 over Lafayette Brook was built in 1932. It has been on the state’s “Red List” of bridges in most need of attention since 2010.

The department says the project may have an effect on historic properties, such as the nearby Lovett’s Inn.

The purpose of the meeting is to present people with the latest information regarding the project, including a preferred alternative. Public input is sought to ensure that project decisions meet transportation needs, community goals and protect and enhance the environment.
