PORTSMOUTH, New Hampshire — U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen will be getting an update on the replacement of the Sarah Long Bridge between New Hampshire and Maine.

In September, transportation officials from the two states reached a $158.5 million tentative price agreement to replace the bridge, which is rated structurally deficient. Construction is scheduled to start late this year with the new bridge expected to open in August 2017.

Shaheen, who helped get a $25 million Department of Transportation grant for the project, will visit the New Hampshire Port Authority on Friday to learn more about the replacement plans for the 70-year-old bridge.
