Bridge Maintenance Work in Alton

Maintenance work will impact traffic for several months

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) will begin maintenance work on the bridge over West Alton Brook, on January 17, 2023.  The bridge carries NH Route 11A over West Alton Brook near the Alton/Gilford Townline. 

The project will be replacing the bridge deck.  To complete this work one lane will be closed, and motorists will be restricted to a single, 12 feet – 6 inch lane over the bridge that will be controlled by temporary traffic signals.

Motorists in the area are encouraged to seek alternate routes.

Weather permitting the work will be completed in early May 2023.
