Closure of the Island Street Bridge to vehicles is scheduled for April 24, 2023. Once this happens, there will be a number of signed detours in place for road users to find their way to Winchester Street, West Street, and Pearl Street. Maps are available on the project website to help guide road users in advance of the bridge closure. We look forward to making this a successful project this year.

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