PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — Transportation officials say the daily scheduled openings of New Hampshire-Maine lift bridges for Piscataqua River boat traffic are about to end for the season.

The daily openings are ending Wednesday for the Memorial Bridge and the Sarah Long Bridge. The bridges connect Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and Kittery, Maine.

When requested, the bridges will open “on call” only until May 2019.
