A bridge over a brook in Southbury is closed indefinitely.  The Spruce Brook Bridge was inspected by the State Department of Transportation on Friday when town officials noticed a significant change in the condition of the culverts.  Southbury officials were told that an immediate closure was recommended. 

 

The bridge carries a roadway over the Transylvania Brook and was closed indefinitely on Monday after a follow up inspection. 

 

Detour signs and a road block have been set up alerting motorists to use Route 172 to Liberty Lane and Yankee Drive.  The road connects to Spruce Brook Road beyond the bridge. 

 

A safe alternative over the brook is being worked on.
