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 January 11, 2021. Signage is in place (currently bagged) to redirect traffic. Also attached is the detour plan for clarity.
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 start date was revised due to required utilities relocations. The new bridge is scheduled to be opened in July.
