A major connection between New Hampshire and Maine has been delayed again.

 

The Sarah Long Bridge, connecting New Hampshire and Maine via the Route 1 Bypass, was scheduled to open earlier this year. The original date was September 1st. A few weeks ago, this blog wrote about a scheduled opening for Friday, December 1st. With the due date tomorrow, it will once again move. Seacoastonline.com reported that Ted Talbot, secretary for the  Maine Department of Transportation said the most recent delay was tied to the quick change to cold weather as the project is in the final stages.Talbot is "confident the bridge will be open by year's end" and that "all energy is being focused on getting it open."
