Construction on the Main Street Bridge begins April 20th and will be ongoing until the end of October. According to NH DOT, during this time one lane of traffic at a time will be allowed across the bridge, alternating north and south, controlled by a traffic light. If this proves to be too much traffic, as determined by DOT, the bridge will be limited to northbound only. Southbound traffic will only be allowed from Riverside St, not 3A.

* 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 Leo Lessard at the Department of Public Works at (603) 668-8019. *
