Wilton Pedestrian Bridge Construction Closings This Week

Construction for the Pedestrian Bridge Project is scheduled to begin the week of August 8, 2022. 

The Pedestrian Bridge project consists of building a bridge connecting the Wilton Train Station on Station Road to the Norwalk River Valley Trail (NRVT) on the opposite side of the river and improvements to the NRVT leading into Wilton Center.   

The first task involves removing trees within the project limits.  Then, the contractor will proceed with bridge foundation work.

For the safety of workers and trail users, during the day the NRVT will be closed from behind Red Rooster Pub to the backside of the Merwin Meadows Park soccer field.  Every effort will be made to open a 5 foot width of trail after work hours and on weekends.

The overflow parking lot on the west side (river side) of the train tracks will be closed throughout the duration of the project.  It is anticipated that work will continue through the fall and be completed in the Spring of 2023.   

Once completed, the bridge is expected to facilitate residential development within and around the train station, commuter access to residences or shops in the Center and access to the NRVT for bikers, walkers and runners residing on the opposite side of the river or arriving by train.  The projected is funded by a grant from the State of Connecticut.
