This new cold snap is delaying work on the Walnut Hill Bridge in Bethel. The next step is installing prefabricated beams, but the temperature needs to be above 40 degrees. First Selectman Matt Knickerbocker says that is the start of the final phase of construction.
The abutments are in place and drainage has been installed. After the beams are put in place the bridge deck plates can be installed and the road paved.
Knickerbocker says the bridge could be reopened to traffic in May.
