On Oct. 18, 2018 the New Hampshire DOT awarded Reed & Reed a $17 million contract to replace three bridges and rebuild 3.5 miles of Rt. 16 in Ossipee New Hampshire.
This project will run for approximately 2 years and replace bridges over the Bear Camp River, the Bear Camp Overflow Channel and Lovell Stream. The project will begin in early November with clearing of right-of-way and relocation of utilities.
The Bear Camp River Bridge and the Overflow Channel Bridge are designed as slide in projects where the new bridge is built adjacent to the existing bridge then when complete the road is detoured for an 84 hour long weekend, the existing bridges are demolished in place and the new bridges are slid into position. It will be a busy 84 hours.
