A company has been selected to design and build a replacement for the Memorial Bridge. The New Hampshire Department of Transportation has selected Archer Western Contractors of Chicago. With a bid of $81.4 million, the company was the highest of three bidders on the project, but it promised to complete the work by July 2013, almost a year ahead of schedule. The current Memorial Bridge, from Portsmouth to Kittery, Maine, was built in 1923. It was closed to motor vehicles late in July because of deterioration. - Tom Long
