 The state Department of Transportation is set to conduct bridge repairs this week on Interstate 89 in Sutton.

The bridge runs northbound over New Hampshire Route 114, just south of exit 11.

Doug Gosling of the Bridge Maintenance Bureau says the work is routine but necessary. “The bridge has a back wall that is rotten down a ways," he says. "We have to basically close the road down to one lane as we repair one half of the back wall, and then switch traffic over to the other half of the road so we can repair the other half.”

Bridge work is scheduled to begin Tuesday and is expected to take about ten days.
