PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — A committee raising money to light up the new Memorial Bridge connecting Maine and New Hampshire has reached $125,000.

The goal is $200,000 for the bridge, which is under construction and expected to open in July. It will replace a nearly 90-year-old bridge connecting Kittery, Maine, and Portsmouth, N.H.

Discussions have included installing LED lights to illuminate the bridge’s towers, piers and a memorial plaque.
