Replacement of Bridge No. 01127, RT. 80 (Foxon Road) over Farm River, in the town of North Branford

The Connecticut Department of Transportation (Department) will conduct a Public Information Meeting concerning the replacement of Bridge No. 01127 in North Branford.  The meeting will take place on Tuesday, November 12, 2013.


Bridge No. 01127:   The primary purpose of this project is to replace the existing Bridge No. 01127, which carries Route 80 (Foxon Road) over the Farm River.  The structure is structurally deficient and functionally obsolete.  The proposed project comprises the design of a new bridge to replace the existing structure with associated approach roadway safety improvements.  The new bridge structure will be constructed using the concept of a temporary bridge bypass to maintain two-lanes of the current opposite directional traffic. 


           Construction of this project is anticipated to begin in spring 2016 and would be completed    

           in one to two-year construction season.  The estimated construction cost for this project is

           approximately $3.1 million.  This project is anticipated to be funded using part Federal

           and supplemented with State funds.


Plans will be available for public review at the North Branford Town Hall.  Department personnel will be available during the meeting to discuss this project.  More detailed information is available at the Departmentís Office of Engineering, 2800 Berlin Turnpike, Newington, Connecticut, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., excluding holidays.  Anyone wishing to review the plans may contact Mr. Sowatei Lomotey, Project Manager at (860) 594-3394 or to make an appointment.


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


This Public Information Meeting is being held to afford a full opportunity for public participation and to allow open discussion of any views and comments the community may have concerning the proposed projects.
