Danbury is applying to the state for funding to pay for a bridge project. The work would be done on the Kennedy Avenue bridge over the Still River. Public Works Director Antonio Iadarola says the local bridge program changes every year, and this year the state is awarding 50-percent grants. The money would be matched by the City though a capital request to be presented to the City Council. The federal funding program has certain requirements and contingencies, and requires a lot more reporting so it negates the cost of any money that would be awarded. Iadarola added that the state grant program has faster turnaround time. If awarded, that funding would pay $1.46 million. The bridge is 43 feet long, 36 feet wide and has a 71-percent sufficiency rating. It's got a 69-percent priority rating.
