Good morning, back to work for those of us who didn’t have a blizzard or flood. I’m combining two photo themes in this posting. “People at Work Monday” and “Monochrome Monday”. All the photos were taken in New Ipswich, NH.
I was pleased to see the inclusion of raised sidewalk which will be included as part of the bridge repair project. I’ve always wanted to view the river without the danger of being run down.The workers poured the cement on September 18, 2015.
Some serious excavation on either side bank of the Souhegan.
Concrete forms and new drainage on the Northern bank of the bridge.
It will be interesting to see how large the span will be when they complete the project.
I can only assume that similar work is being performed on the Southern Bank. I’ll check that out for my next update.

Some real progress has been made on the bridge work here in New Ipswich. Besides all the iron work they have plugged up the old water pipe (left) which used to carry water from Bank Village. Probably a good idea before someone crawled into it.
A serious pile driver. Imagine hearing that all day. I suppose it would shake the china off the shelves in the nearby home.
This shovel is parked right along the edge of a dirt bank, 42 feet above the Souhegan river. Please be careful.
Nice view for these folks. Only consolation is that the banks won’t be eroding for some time.
