Sarah Mildred Long Bridge Weekend Closing Times Adjusted
Kittery – MaineDOT has decided to adjust the scheduled closing times of the Sarah Mildred Long Bridge on Saturday and Sunday evenings to better accommodate tourists and area businesses. The bridge will now be closed to traffic beginning at 9 p.m., rather than 8 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday evenings. All other closing times throughout the week will remain the same.

The bridge will be closed to all traffic during the following days and times:
