The lift span of the Memorial Bridge was removed this past Wednesday. If I lived or worked in Portsmouth I would have popped over multiple times during the day; instead I was happy with a visit today. I should say I was happy and surprised because I expected the lift span to have already been removed. It was still sitting on a barge next to the bridge, with the removal date set for sometime between February 10th and the 16th depending on the weather, the tides, and the sea.
For information on the bridge removal, see the New Memorial Bridge page.

Yes, I know there are white streaks on some of the photos. It was snowing!
