* Until further notice, The Town of Hooksett advises boaters to avoid travel under the two westerly (northerly) spans of the Lilac Bridge, closest to Robie’s General Store, over the Merrimack River in the Village of Hooksett. The bridge remains closed and barricaded to all pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Recent bridge inspections found critical structural deficiencies that pose concerns to public safety resulting in the partial closure to boat traffic. Boaters are advised to only travel under the
easterly (southerly) span closest to Veterans Drive and to be aware of shallow water and obstructions in the river. For more information or questions, please contact Hooksett Public Works at 668-8019. *
