Construction is underway and expected to continue through the 2023 construction season due to the extensive amount of utility relocations that are a necessary part of the bridge rehabilitation work. Mohawk Northeast, Inc. is the prime contractor.
The project plans were also updated to include the extension of the cycle track and pedestrian walkway down the southeast ramp to Canal Street. The ramp has been permanently closed to motor vehicles. Access to Bridge Street from Canal Street has been routed to the new roadway through the former Spongx property that now houses the Canal Street Lofts Building.
The design team successfully worked with CTDOT to incorporate accent lighting to the bridge in order to illuminate the bridge at night.
