The Town of Manchester agreed to close the bridge at the intersection of Depot Street and Main Street for up to ten days beginning after the busy Labor Day weekend so that the bridge can be reopened to vehicle traffic before the even busier fall foliage season. The closure is expected to start on Tuesday, September 4 at 6:00AM and last until Thursday, September 13 at noon.
The bridge closure will allow the Town and its contractor to finish the overwhelming majority of this important $5 million downtown reconstruction project in one construction season, with some minor work occurring next spring, including final topcoat paving, landscaping and punch list items.
Below is a series of links, with each major detour individually mapped by category (one set for trucks and another for smaller vehicles). The maps below do not constitute all possible detour routes.
Please direct questions to the project's public information officer, Tricia Hayes, at (802) 362-0207 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For up-to-date information, visit the Town's Facebook page at: www.facebook.com/ManchesterGov.
First and foremost, please be patient. Roadway construction is never easy, and this project is even more challenging because it is inside a very busy commercial district. When the project is done Manchester will have one of the most beautiful downtowns in all of New England. We are building the Manchester of tomorrow, today.
Remember, all downtown Manchester businesses are open for business. You don't need to avoid the downtown area. In fact, now is the time to show your support for our local businesses.
Pedestrian and bicycle access along Main Street on the eastern (mill pond) side will be open most of the time.
School Street and Memorial Avenue are now two-way. However, during school days (between 8AM and 8:30AM and 3:00 and 3:30PM) it is best to avoid this detour route.
Wyman Lane and Cottage Street are also now two-way for small vehicles only (no trucks, please). The intersection of these two roadways is narrow, so please drive carefully.
The curb cut for Hand Motors and The Northshire Bookstore on Bonnet Street will be open but the curb cut on Main Street won't be open.
Northbound trucks should use Route 7 whenever possible, instead of Route 7A.
The bridge will be open to Maple Leaf Half Marathon runners and walkers on Saturday, September 8 between 8:00AM and 10:00AM.
