The span on the Kittery side of the bridge under construction was carried on a barge early this morning to its final destination.

KITTERY, Maine (AP) _ The north span of the new Memorial Bridge connecting New Hampshire and Maine has floated in.

The span on the Kittery side was carried on a barge early Wednesday to its final destination. Workers are preparing to set it in place.

Small groups of onlookers turned out for the float-in, which started around 12:30 a.m.

After the span is set, work will start on the center span, which is scheduled to be added in June.

The new Memorial Bridge connecting Portsmouth and Kittery is scheduled to open to traffic this summer.
