Merritt Parkway Bridge Repair to Shut Down North Ave.

The 75-year-old North Avenue Bridge over the Merritt Parkway will undergo rehabilitation in the summer of 2015, forcing closure of the busy roadway that connects four Westport public schools, it was announced today.

Westport Director of Public Works Stephen Edwards said the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CDOT) will conduct a public information meeting concerning the $2.6 million project -– all paid for with state funds—on Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Town Hall auditorium.

Work is anticipated to begin in spring 2015 and be completed in fall 2015, Edwards said. The construction will require North Avenue to be closed at the bridge site for the duration of the summer school recess period between mid-June to mid-August. Traffic will be detoured utilizing Easton Road, Weston Road and Cross Highway, he said.

North Avenue is a busy school bus route with Staples High School and Bedford Middle School on one end of North Avenue (between Cross Highway and Long Lots Road) and Coleytown Elementary and Coleytown Middle Schools on the other (between Easton Road and Coleytown Road).
