GREENWICH, Conn. – Drivers in Greenwich's Riverside neighborhood will have to detour around the Lockwood Lane bridge that spans I-95 when it closes for a construction project on April 1.
The $3 million project will replace the entire bridge. The project is expected to be completed by November with the road scheduled to re-open on Nov. 30.
Preliminary work on the bridge began on Monday.
The project will affect routes to Eastern Middle School and Riverside School. Students who walk to school over that bridge are advised to make alternate arrangements.
Project engineer Mary Baker said at Thursday's Board of Selectmen meeting that arrangements have been made to limit the noise of the project. The noisiest work will be limited to one week in July when the bridge and its substructure will be demolished.
Noise monitors will be in the neighborhood to make sure town and state standards are met, Baker said.
