According to Peter Stamnas, Director of Project Development, the number of red-list bridges will continue to increase, with 242 bridges expected to join the list.

AGC Truck Weights Report & Survey Results


The AGC of NH has released its Truck Weight Overview. The report shows results of a survey the association conducted on local construction and trucking companies to determine how many are affected by the removal of a footnote on the state axle spacing chart. The report also examines safety and financial implications, federal and state truck weight laws, and comparisons with other New England states. The association worked with the state legislature to find a solution and was successful at passing necessary language at the state level. AGC continues to work with our Congressional delegation to fix this for the interstate highways as well. Click here
