Temporary Bridge Moved into Place on I-95

Construction workers have moved the skeleton of a temporary bridge into place to replace an I-95 overpass in Bridgeport that melted last week in the fiery crash of a fuel oil tanker truck.

The process, begun as the evening rush hour got under way, took a few hours.

State Department of Transportation spokesman Chris Cooper said the bridge on the southbound side of the highway will be paved today and should be open to motorists by Thursday.

The northbound lanes of the bridge were repaired and reopened Sunday night.

The U.S. Department of Transportation said Monday that it would give Connecticut $2 million in emergency aid to build the new bridge and pay for police overtime for traffic control.

The agency already has expedited $11.2 million in highway funds for the project.
