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.

The Bridge Design Team of FIGG/Hardesty & Hanover are renowned for their public participation process and ability to reach consensus. Collectively, this team brings experience on bridge projects that have won more than 1,000 awards for world-class bridge design.

A Stakeholders Group has been formed to provide initial input to the Design Team. The Stakeholders process is an open process where the members will help guide the Design Team by identifying project needs and providing feedback on the design as it is developed. In addition to providing design feedback, the stakeholders will also be asked to act as liaisons, between the various interest groups and the DOTs, by sharing information on the project with the groups they represent and bringing back any issues/concerns raised.

In addition, it is anticipated that there will be two, all-day workshops to provide broad input regarding the aesthetics of the bridge.
