Winchester Street Construction - Bridge Removal & Safety

Thursday, July 12, 2023

On Monday, July 10, 2023, the City’s contractor began the removal of the Island Street Bridge. We ask that users avoid recreating (swimming, use of kayaks, canoes, etc.) in or on the Ashuelot River near the Island Street bridge during reconstruction. The expected bridge completion date is mid-December 2023. Although the contractor is required to provide measures to prevent debris from falling into the river, there is a small risk of falling debris. There are also some in-river operations, such as pile driving and sediment control, that are not safe for river users. Due to the low estimated volume of users within the Ashuelot River, a warning sign package was not provided.

Thank you in advance for your patience. As always, please check out the project website or the Keene Public Works Facebook page for updates as things progress. Please contact our office if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you!
