Built in 1829, the Haverhill-Bath Bridge is the oldest covered bridge in New Hampshire and is the oldest Town lattice truss covered bridge still in existence. It is one of the oldest covered bridges in North America.
It’s tough to capture the magnificence of the bridge, the dam, and the Ammonoosuc with a photograph. This video was taken from the Raymond S. Burton Bridge that bypassed the HBB in 1999.
Bement Bridge Rehabilitation
The Bement Bridge in Bradford underwent a significant rehabilitation in 2020- 2021. The $1,641,689.26 project was led by the engineering firm of Hoyle, Tanner & Associates, Inc. of Manchester. Daniels Construction, Inc. of Ascutney, Vermont, began work on July 13, 2020.
On April 27, 2021, crews pulled the bridge onto the new abutments using rollers on a frame, pulled by construction crews using winches and cables. My husband and I were fortunate enough to be there to watch the bridge be pulled back into place.
