LEBANON, N.H. (AP) — Work is about to start on repairs to two “red list" bridges that carry Interstate 89 traffic between New Hampshire and Vermont.

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation said the bridges carry traffic between Lebanon, New Hampshire, and Hartford, Vermont, over the Connecticut River and New England Central and Washington County railroads.

The work is scheduled to start Tuesday.

The $43.8 million project is scheduled to be completed by Sept. 26, 2025.

Red list bridges are considered in poor condition and are inspected more frequently.

The Valley News had reported that the deck and superstructure of the bridges will be removed and replaced. They also will be widened for merger lanes that will allow traffic to travel between interstates 89 and 91 without having to briefly merge with through traffic.
