WOODSTOCK, N.H. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The White Mountains will get a visit from President Biden on Tuesday. The President is doing a victory lap after signing his signature bipartisan $1 trillion physical infrastructure deal into law, and has decided to make an example of one bridge in Woodstock.

He is expected to show off how the deal will impact the country's roads and bridges.

The bridge, which was built in 1939 and carries Route 175 over the Pemigewasset River according to the AP, was number 22 on the state's priority list as of last year.

New Hampshire Senator Maggie Hassan lauded the deal, which will bring more than a billion dollars in infrastructure funding money to her state. She will be joining President Biden in Woodstock.

"This is a real example of what happens when we come together and we put aside partisanship," she told WBZ NewsRadio on Tuesday morning. Hassan said she worked particularly hard on making sure rural broadband access and cybersecurity money was in the package. She also said there would be money for passenger rail which could help connect New Hampshire's commuter cities to Boston.

President Biden will touch down at Bradley Airfield in Woodstock at around 1:45 PM.
