DOVER, N.H. (AP) - A group of New Hampshire residents are looking to replace a long-closed and rusted out bridge with a waterfront park and marina.

Tom Regan, a retired construction inspector and Dover resident, says the General Sullivan Bridge has been rusting out since it was closed to traffic 32 years ago. The Portsmouth Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2vTUtmQ ) Gov. Chris Sununu was provided an outline of the plans on Thursday.

Regan developed the plan with the assistance of DeStefano Architects in Portsmouth.

Regan’s plan is hypothetical at this point, although he is confident in his plan to replace the old bridge with a waterfront marina and dock on the Piscataqua (pihs-KAT’-ah-kwah) River for public use.

A spokesman says the Republican governor has not been briefed yet on the plans.
