Replacement of Bridge in New Canaan

The Town of New Canaan under the State Local Bridge Program is replacing Bridge No. 089012 which carries West Road over the Rippowam River.

The Bridge that is located just North of Turtleback Road will be closed to all traffic starting as soon as July 20, 2020. Signage is in place (currently bagged) to redirect traffic. Please see image here for details.

The new bridge will reduce the frequency overtopping of the roadway, and the bridge will pass the 50-year design flood event. The project also includes sight line improvements and has been designed aesthetically to fit into the surrounding areas.

The new bridge is scheduled to open between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Plan your travel routes accordingly.
