Long Description:
The Piscataqua River Bridge, is a cantilevered through arch bridge that crosses the Piscataqua River, carrying six lanes of Interstate 95 and connecting Portsmouth, New Hampshire with Kittery, Maine.



The bridge is the third modern span crossing the Piscataqua between Portsmouth and Kittery, but it is the first fixed span to do so. The two older spans, the Memorial Bridge and the Sarah Mildred Long Bridge, are both lift bridges, built as such to accommodate ship traffic along the Piscataqua. The high arch design of the Piscataqua River Bridge eliminates the need for a movable roadway.
Date Built: 01/01/1972

Length of Span:
4,503 feet
