Bridge Street Bridge Repair Work Starts

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.

The contractor will be in direct contact with the Selectman’s office to provide adequate notice of closures.  In addition, the contractor will be posting information in advance on either end of the bridge using electronic message boards. The state will set up appropriate detour signage during the closures and will be utilizing Westport Police to direct traffic during these events.

Once the mechanical equipment is removed from the bridge for repair, it will be essentially inoperable, according to the contractor. If absolutely necessary, the bridge can be opened manually, but this will require at least 24 hours to physically accomplish, and must be coordinated with the state and the contractor well in advance, it said.

The bridge in its closed, (normal), position will still be passable to small vessels. The under clearance at mean high water is approximately 7 feet.

It is anticipated that this condition will be in place for the full two months of repair work, the contractor said. The state will be providing notice to the Coast Guard regarding the bridge condition.
