Merrill's Marauders Bridge under repair

MERRIMACK – Expect to slow down on F.E. Everett Turnpike this week as Merrill’s Marauders Bridge undergoes repairs.

The bridge will be rehabilitated, with a complete replacement of the deck and widening to allow for construction and wider shoulders, the state Department of Transportation said. A concrete barrier will be used to shift traffic, and occasional lane closures may be necessary between 9 a.m and 3 p.m., DOT said. State police will help guide motorists through the work zone.
