Route 133 in Bridgewater is being closed again for advance work on a state Department of Transportation project. Route 133 will be closed beginning September 6th through the 22nd.
A detour is being put in place so utility work can continue. The road was reopened just before the Bridgewater Fair.
The utility work includes replacing some 3,000 feet of conduit and various utility vaults along with the installation of 25,000 feet of new fiber optic cable.
The detour will route traffic along 133 to through New Milford. Drivers can then take 202/7 south to Route 25 in Brookfield and back to Route 133.
The DOT project planned for next year includes guide rail replacements in the area of the Lake Lillinonah Bridge. 3,000 feet of roadway will be fully reconstructed and the rest of the road will be milled and paved.
