LANCASTER — The Mt. Orne Covered Bridge is expected to re-open by the end of February. The cross-state bridge connecting Lancaster and Lunenburg has been closed since it was struck by an oversized vehicle on Nov. 10. Arnold M. Graton Associates Inc. of Holderness repaired the damage in late December. However, the Connecticut River bridge remains closed until mitigation measures are implemented. Those measures are expected to include traffic control signage (stop, yield), reflective road markings, and crash bars on either side of the 266-foot-long Howe truss bridge. On Monday, town Manager Ben Gaetjens-Oleson told the Select Board those measures should be in place later this month, allowing for the bridge to be re-opened.
