Vision calls for replacing Gen. Sullivan Bridge with park, marina

The General Sullivan Bridge, spanning Dover and Newington, was closed to vehicle traffic 32 years ago and “has been rusting out since,” said Tom Regan, a retired construction inspector.  “They say it’s historical,” Regan said, while standing next to the bridge last week. “But if it’s historical, why did they let it go to hell for the last 32 years?”  Portsmouth native, now living in Dover, Regan has a plan that could turn the decaying bridge into a waterfront park and marina. To portray his vision, he enlisted the help of Lisa DeStefano’s Portsmouth architectural firm, DeStefano Architects, which made drawings of a utopian place where people could stroll, dine and dock their boats, all on or near the Piscataqua River.
