Traffic Advisory: Bridge Work Starts Tomorrow, August 23

I received this information from Mayor Murphy's Administrative Aide, Tammy Reardon:

"Beginning on Thursday, August 23rd, Michael Baker Engineering, Inc and its sub-consultant, GM2 Associates Inc. will be performing a bridge safety inspection on the Veteran's Bridge (No. 00901) over the Housatonic River on State Routes 202 & 67, in conjunction with the Connecticut Department of Transportation Bridge Safety & Evaluation Department.

The bridge inspection will take place on Thursday and Friday, August 23rd and 24th from 9am until 3pm; and on Saturday and Sunday, August 25th and 26th from 6am until 1pm.
During these times, there will be only one-way alternating traffic due to the inspection equipment necessary to be set-up on the bridge.  New Milford Police Department will be utilized for traffic control during inspection times.

Please plan your trips accordingly, utilize alternate routes and allow for extra time during your travels due to the anticipated traffic delays."
