CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — While crews are working to assess damage to roads in New Hampshire, a main bridge into a resort in Lincoln has collapsed.

The bridge to Loon Mountain had been damaged by high waters from Tropical Storm Irene.

Inspectors are checking out bridges and trying to repair the damage.

Meanwhile, the resort is open and can be reached via the “South Peak Resort” sign in Lincoln.

The state Emergency Operations Center says that seven state routes and 95 local roads remain damaged.

There have been over 200 storm-related injuries and one reported death.
