An update on vessels arriving at the Port of New Hampshire

The big port news is that, after several delays, the new Sarah Mildred Long Bridge is scheduled to open to traffic on Friday, March 30. Other than that, it’s looking like a quiet week in Portsmouth Harbor. The Stonington Eagle arrived last Friday and will remain in port until Thursday, when it will be replaced by a tug and barge. Learn more in the latest installment of Port Watch.
