Process and Schedule

Sarah Mildred Long Bridge Replacement Project Open House
Thursday, September 18th from 3 pm to 6 pm The Kittery Community Center at Frisbbe Commons
120 Rogers Road Kittery, Maine

The Maine Department of Transportation and the New Hampshire Department of Transportation are sponsoring an open house to showcase the final design of the new Sarah Mildred Long Bridge. Members of the public and the media are encouraged to explore the open house’s multi-media exhibits, which will include 3D animations, slideshows, and a model to help people understand how aspects of the new bridge will promote mobility, avoid congestion, enable growth, and support a thriving port.

Department of Transportation representatives, along with the design team of FIGG I Hardesty & Hanover Joint Venture, will be available to answer questions and talk about additional details including the design, the alignment, and the schedule. This open house is the latest of nine public activities for the project. A portion of the exhibit will detail the public process and explain the process by which members of the public selected aspects of the new bridge.

MaineDOT plans to replace the existing Sarah Mildred Long Bridge through the alternative project delivery method known as the Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC) process.

The CM/GC process allows an owner (represented by MaineDOT) to engage a contractor, known as a Construction Manager, to provide constructability input during the design process.  The intent is to form a partnership among the Owner, the Construction Manager, and the Design Consultant. The “Stakeholders Group” is also an integral partner to ensure the bridge design reflects the interests, personality and aesthetics of the community whenever practicable.
