Town Bulletin Board:
- Waterloo Bridge Closed! Per order of the DPW, the Waterloo Bridge is closed until further notice.
Someone drove thru with a box truck some time during the night of 6/17/16 and damaged all the bracing on the
right side of bridge heading up Newmarket Rd. There seems to be no structural damage to the under structure
but the DPW is not comfortable with leaving it open until all the bracing is repaired and the State takes a
look at it.
Update 06/25/16: An inspector from State of NH will be at the bridge on Monday, 6/27 at 6 AM. If all goes well, the bridge will be open on Monday.

The array is complete and initial tests have been completed. The final inspection has also been done. We are just waiting on the utility to process the Certificate of Completion, which should happen within the next week (6/27-7/1), and then the system will be live.
