  The Memorial Bridge will be closed to all traffic for part of the day Tuesday. 

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation is conducting planned inspections on the span between Portsmouth and Kittery, Maine from 5 am to 4 pm tomorrow.

The bridge will be closed to all vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian traffic during the inspection period, though DOT officials say navigation on the Piscataqua River will not be affected.

The new Memorial Bridge opened in 2013, replacing a span that had been in place for about 90 years.
