If you've driven on Kenosia Avenue in Danbury over the last several months, you've noticed orange cones and signs about a narrow bridge. 

 

A temporary repair was done in conjunction with the state because two outside beams completely rotten.  The state Department of Transportation says the structure was in need of immediate repair.  City officials recently redesigned plans with construction slated to potentially start in May. 

 

Public Works Director Antonio Iadarola says the structural plans were forwarded to the pre-caster and the City has received the Prestressed Structural Beam Slabs shop drawings which were reviewed and approved. 

 

A detour route has been developed, but Iadarola is concerned because it's pretty long.  He is contemplating whether to close the road to expedite construction, or have alternating one-way traffic.
