WALPOLE, N.H. (AP) - Repairs are scheduled for next spring to a bridge that carries traffic over the Connecticut River from New Hampshire to Vermont.

Officials from Walpole, New Hampshire, and Westminster, Vermont, held a meeting Thursday to discuss plans.

The Eagle Times reports (https://bit.ly/1NYaCae) David Scott of the New Hampshire Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Bridge Design said commuter bridge was built in the early 1900s and has seen better days since the last deck was replaced in 1989.

Deck repairs, pavement removal, and joint replacement are among the planned improvements.

Most of the work will be paid for by New Hampshire, because most of the bridge is in the state.

About 8,600 vehicle crossings take place each day on average at the bridge.
