Bridge to nowhere

Portsmouth's Memorial Bridge is now a bridge to nowhere. The last time I visited was the weekend after the lift section was removed, allowing me to grab photos of the two connected to land but not to each other sections of the bridge.

Deconstruction of the remaining pieces of the bridge has been progressing. Today I found that the section of the bridge on the New Hampshire side of the river is gone, and the section on the Maine side is getting smaller.
