Public Info. Meeting - Replacement of Bridge No. 0390, Mosher Ave. over Amtrak in Groton, CT

The Department of Transportation (Department) will conduct a Public Information Meeting concerning the replacement of Bridge No. 0390, Mosher Avenue over Amtrak in Groton, Connecticut. 

Project No. 58-336 involves the replacement of the superstructure of Bridge No. 03903, Mosher Avenue over Amtrak.  An approximate eight week closure of the bridge and detour will be required in order to remove and replace the superstructure.  Subsequent to the eight week closure, the bridge will reopen to one-way alternating traffic for the remainder of the construction season.  The traffic during this time period will be controlled by a temporary traffic signal, which will include a push button for a pedestrian phase.  The new superstructure will have a slightly deeper cross-section, which will necessitate a modification to the profile.  Approximately 150 feet of Mosher Avenue will be reconstructed, and approximately 450 feet of Ward Avenue will be reconstructed.


Construction is anticipated to commence in spring 2020, assuming availability of funding and be completed fall 2020.  The estimated construction cost is $4,250,000 and will use both Federal and State funds.


The Public Information Meeting is being held to afford a full opportunity for the publicís participation and to allow open discussion of any views and comments the community may have prior to progressing the proposed project into the Design Phase.


Conceptual drawings will be available for public review.  Department personnel will be available during the meeting to discuss this project.  More detailed information is available at the Department's Office of Engineering, 2800 Berlin Turnpike, Newington, Connecticut, during office hours, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., excluding holidays.  Anyone wishing to review the plans may contact Mr. Andrew J. Cardinali, Transportation Supervising Engineer at (860) 594-3315.


All persons interested in these projects are welcome to attend this meeting and discuss the projects with Department personnel.
