Temporary Cherniske Road bridge in New Milford assembled

The temporary bridge for Cherniske Road in New Milford has been assembled and is on the abutments.  The one-lane bridge was closed in January 2021 due to poor condition.  Once today's work is completed, Mayor Pete Bass says the bridge will be moved and baseplate replaced.  The temporary bridge will be used until the permanent bridge is designed and installed.  New Milford can reuse the temporary structure on other bridges that need to be maintained, repaired or replaced.  The parts could be disassembled and stored for future use at any other location.  A two-lane bridge is replacing the structure in order to qualify for state funding since the one-lane design is considered functionally obsolete.
