Sound Beach Ave Bridge Closed Monday, Sept 19, for Culvert Installation

From Dept of Public Works:

The Sound Beach Avenue Bridge will be closed this Monday, Sept 19, from 7:00am to 5:00pm, due to bridge culvert installation work.

Vehicles will be detoured to Harding Road and Forest Avenue. Please give yourself a little extra time when traveling, follow posted detour signage, and obey police directions. This work is part of a crucial project to replace a deteriorating bridge used by approximately 14,500 vehicles daily. For more information and to view the detour route, please click HERE.

Final trench restoration work for the Old Greenwich Common Force Main Replacement Project will begin this Monday, which can impact traffic with temporary road closures and detours. Comprised of six work zones, the project will start in Work Zone 6 (the traffic circle where Arch Street, West End Avenue, and Summit Road meet) this Monday (9/19) and a second crew will begin working in Work Zone 1 (Oval Avenue near the Riverside train station) this Tuesday (9/20). Work is scheduled to occur between 7:00am and 4:00pm, Monday through Friday.

Depending on weather and unforeseen conditions, this work is anticipated to take approximately four weeks to complete. Please note that due to work being performed by Aquarion Water Company and Connecticut Natural Gas within the limits of this project, final curb-to-curb paving will not occur until sometime in 2023 after all utility work is finished.

Department of Public Works appreciates your patience as we improve the longevity and reliability of the Town’s most critical sewer force main.
