KITTERY, Maine (AP) - Preliminary details have surfaced regarding the joint rehabilitation of the Piscataqua River Bridge by the Maine and New Hampshire departments of transportation.

The Portsmouth Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1TQybaO ) the full scope of the project has yet to be determined, although maintenance work on the bridge that connects Maine and New Hampshire via Interstate 95 won’t begin until 2018.

The two states have split the $450,000 in engineering costs to bring the project to bid. The entire project’s price tag will depend on state lines, with work on the Maine side being billed to that state and vice versa.

The two states’ DOT’s estimate the project will cost between $7 million and $9 million.

Engineers will now determine which repairs are needed immediately and which can be held until the future.
