The state Department of Transportation held a meeting in New Milford late last week about repairs that will be made to Veteran's Bridge in the summer of 2019.
The repairs include to the bridge truss, floorbeams, cleaning the bearings and patching the concrete deck panel. New expansion joints will be installed, the railing will be upgraded and it will be repaved.
New Milford residents were concerned about traffic because of the repairs, asked about the possibility of more lanes across the bridge and if easements were needed. The state DOT says the bridge would only be closed for work during the overnights.
New Milford officials have asked for additional lighting along the bridge.
