Frozen in Time


Stark Covered Bridge in Winter
We are in the middle of winter and the Upper Ammonoosuc River is completely frozen in the area of the historic covered bridge, but the recent warm weather is making us long for spring.

The Stark Covered Bridge was recently featured in an article in the Coos County Democrat.

On Wednesday, Jason Ross (project manager) met with the Stark Selectmen and NHDOT project manager, C.R. Willeke, to discuss the status of the project.  The Selectmen signed a municipal agreement with NHDOT that outlines the Town’s responsibilities.  HEB has been given permission to proceed with the historical documentation of the bridge, the structural assessment, and the engineering study which will investigate several rehabilitation options.  We would appreciate feedback, so don’t forget about the public input meeting on scheduled for 02/29/12.
