Walnut Hill bridge to reopen within weeks

A project is set to wrap up that had been delayed several times by engineering challenges underground and an extreme winter.  Detours will be in place in Bethel for a while longer while work continues on the Walnut Hill Bridge replacement. 

 

First Selectman Matt Knickerbocker says the bridge deck is completed, the top has been grouted and it's been cured.  The curbs are in place and the guard rails are being installed.  The approach ramps on the north and south sides of the bridge were completed last week to connect it to the roadway so the structure can be paved. 

 

The extreme cold this winter meant it took longer for the concrete and the grout to cure. 

 

A new drainage system was installed and the road has been raised several inches from where it was to also improve drainage.  Traffic should be flowing over the bridge by the last week of May, weather permitting.
