The Town of Westport has been notified by the Connecticut Department of Transportation that repair work to the Bridge Street bridge over the Saugatuck River will begin today. The bridge was damaged during Storm Sandy.
First Selectman Gordon Joseloff said the contractor, Cianbro Construction Co., will be working through the beginning of April to make repairs to both the mechanical and electrical components of the swing bridge, formally known as the William F. Cribari Bridge.
The time frame is dependent on what, if any, additional damages are found during execution of the planned repairs, he said.
Most traffic impacts will occur at night, when the bridge will be closed to remove/replace certain mechanical components. It is possible that some short daytime shutdowns may also be necessary, Joseloff said.
