The Memorial Bridge is the only one of the three Portsmouth harbor bridges that bicyclists and pedestrians can use to cross the Piscataqua River between Portsmouth and Kittery. Conservative estimates claim that an average of 400 people cross over the bridge daily. Motor vehicle traffic using Memorial Bridge is a critical link not only between the economies of Portsmouth and Kittery but the whole NH and southern Maine seacoasts as well as the avenue for our tourists. It is imperative that we seek the two state and federal grant supports to move forward immediately to continue this vital link. As a community, when we stand together, we CAN build bridges.
