BATH, N.H. (AP) - The longest covered bridge in New Hampshire is reopening after $3 million in repairs.

The Bath Village Bridge, which is 392 feet long, was reopening Thursday.

WMUR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1uSIagw) it’s been closed to traffic since October 2012.

The bridge, which spans the Ammonoosuc River and connects West Bath Road with Bath Village, is one of the village’s best known landmarks. It is the fifth bridge to stand on the site, after floods and a fire removed earlier ones. It’s in the National Register of Historic Places.

The goal was to replace some of the rotted parts of the bridge, truss and roof, and put in new floor beams and a deck, along with a new metal roof and siding.
