The Island Street Bridge remains closed to vehicles. Detour maps are available on the project website to help guide road users. The bridge subcontractor is currently behind schedule; the bridge has remained open until now for pedestrian use. Once we receive a fully updated schedule, we will provide another community update.

As always, please check out the project website or the Keene Public Works Facebook page for updates as things progress. Thank you!
