The Shore Road Bridge, which is on Connecticut’s Historic Bridge Inventory will begin its renovation beginning Monday, Aug. 18.
The Town DPW will maintain the existing aesthetics, existing roadway profile, and exiting roadway cross section.
The work is being done as part of the DPW Engineering ongoing local bridge program work to maintain 75 Town owned bridges.
The CT DOT gave the bridge an overall rating of “poor” due to the deterioration of the stone masonry arch.
The existing roadway will e removed over the arch and the stone arch will be repaired, a new roadway will then be built over the bridge. Also, a new peestrian bridge will be installed to the east of the existing bridge.
The intersection of Sore Rd and Grass Island Drive will be temporarily modified to accommodate large vehicles when the detour is in place.
The project will be closely coordinated with the Shore Road Sewer Rehabilitation Project.
Signs will be used to help facilitate detours. The detour length is approximately one mile and will utilize Shore Rd, Horseneck Lane, Field Point Rd, and Intervale Place.
The contractor is A. Vitti Excavators, LLC of Stamford.
The work will start Monday, Aug 18 and is expected to last until spring 2015.
Shore Rd will be closed several times throughout the project. Direct questions to Frank Petise, P.E., Senior Civil Engineer with the Town’s DPW Engineering Division Tel. (203) 622-7860.
