Kleinfelder provided comprehensive engineering services for replacement of the Central Street Bridge, in conformance with the New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) Municipal Bridge AidProgram. Kleinfelder also provided historical permitting services once the replacement bridge was found eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.
The bridge provides a vital connection between the towns of Bristol and New Hampton. With realigned approaches, wider travel lanes, softened curves, and a wide sidewalk, the new bridge greatly increases vehicular and pedestrian safety—with minimal impact to adjacent properties and the natural setting. Furthermore, use of low-cost, durable materials minimizes maintenance costs for both municipalities.
