A box truck apparently sheared off its top today under the railroad overpass on Saugatuck Avenue in Westport and kept on going.

Firefighters responded to a report of a hazardous condition at the overpass just before 1 p.m., said Assistant Chief Robert Kepchar.

Westport police were reporting a large section of metal was stuck under the bridge and obstructing traffic, he said.

“Arriving units found that a large top section of a box truck had been sheared off by the underside of the bridge,” Kepchar said.

Rell Announces Grants to Two Westport Arts Nonprofits

Gov. M. Jodi Rell today announced that more than $1.97 million in matching grants has been awarded to 132 nonprofit arts organizations throughout Connecticut, including the Westport Country Playhouse and the Westport Arts Center.

The grants augment general operating support grants awarded to these organizations in July. 

The Westport Country Playhouse received a supplemental grant of $62,506 for a total of $90,895 in fiscal year 2008. The Westport Arts Center received a supplemental grant of $11,562, bringing its total for the fiscal year to $38,246.

Funds for the grants are a result of the $4 million Rell and the General Assembly allocated to the Connecticut Commission on Culture & Tourism in the 2007-2008 budget as part of the governor’s Cultural Treasures initiative.
