Road Closure on Monroe Street in South Norwalk at  Metro-North RR Bridge to Begin on or About  March 30, 2010 
 
 
The Connecticut Department of Transportation is announcing that there will be a road closure on Monroe Street in South Norwalk, under the Metro-North Railroad Bridge, between the Railroad Station Driveway and State Street, to dismantle a portion of the existing railroad bridge.
 
Closures will occur:
 
  • On or about, March 30 through Thursday, April 1
  • On or about April 5 through Friday, April 9

 

The roadway will be closed to through traffic from 7:00AM to 4:00PM each day that the work is scheduled, in order to dismantle the existing bridge steel for Track 6.  Commuters will need to follow the posted detour signs during this time.  During this time, local traffic will be permitted to access the railroad facilities, parking garage and residences, but no traffic will be allowed to pass below the bridge.  Pedestrian traffic below the bridge will be maintained at all times.   

 

Please allow for extra time to reach the train station and board your train.  The Connecticut Department of Transportation understands the inconvenience of these closures and will complete this work as quickly as possible.  Your patience and cooperation are greatly appreciated.

 

Traffic control personnel will be on site directing motorists and pedestrians during the construction operations. 

 

This work is part of an ongoing project to replace bridges and catenary on the Metro-North New Haven Line between South Norwalk and Stamford.

 

The Connecticut Department of Transportation appreciates your patience as improvements and upgrades occur on the New Haven Rail Line.  These projects support the State’s continued effort to meet future needs on your public transportation system.
