Work on I-95 overpass delayed until May

Work on the Interstate-95 overpass in Riverside has been pushed back to May.

Originally the beginning of the rehabilitation of the Lockwood Lane Bridge was scheduled to begin on April 1, but the town announced this week that will now begin in May without a specific date known. The good news is that this will delay the planned closure of the road as well.

This was done after a progress meeting between the Connecticut Department of Transportation, ROTHA Contracting, and members of the town’s Department of Public Works was held last week. The project is being administered by the DOT. The scheduled completion date for the project is November 30, 2013 with a total construction cost of $3,055,349.50.

Now the Lockwood Lane Bridge will be closed to both vehicular and pedestrian traffic for the duration of the project from the middle of May through November 30, 2013. Check the town’s website for an update on the exact closure date near the beginning of May.

The following detour will be established: Traffic normally traveling northbound on Lockwood Lane will utilize Lockwood Road west to Riverside Avenue north to East Putnam Avenue (Route 1) east. Traffic  normally traveling southbound on Lockwood Lane will utilize East Putnam Avenue (Route 1) west to Riverside Avenue south to Lockwood Road east.

Anyone interested in obtaining additional information may contact Stacey Epps, project engineer with the DOT District III Construction, at 203-389-3100.

Anyone interested in obtaining general information or road closure updates may contact Frank Petise, senior civil engineer, with the Department of Public Works Engineering Division at 203-622-7860 or by visiting the Road Closures link on the town’s website at
