Briefs: Detours due to Cribari Bridge repairs
Cribari Bridge repairs mean detours
WESTPORT — Nighttime detours Mondays through Thursdays will be in place through Sept. 7 for the William Cribari Bridge on Route 136 over the Saugatuck River, which is undergoing repairs.
The state Department of Transportation said the evening bridge closure and detour will be in place from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. so the bridge’s overhead truss system can be fixed.
The bridge, originally built in 1884, underwent a superstructure replacement in 1991 and the bridge’s original trusses were retained as ornamental facade. While the superstructure is in fair condition, the trusses, which are not considered primary load-carrying units, are in critical condition, said Priti Bhardwaj, a transportation supervising engineer with the DOT who is serving as manager of the Cribari project.
