Proposed bridge project to be discussed Nov. 21

The town is set to discuss the replacement of the bridge at Sound Beach Avenue over Cider Mill Brook, as well as intersection improvements at Sound Beach Avenue, Laddins Rock Road and Harding Road at a Nov. 21 community meeting.

According to the town, the project is in the concept stage and may be recommended for the construction under the Surface Transportation Program or the Local Transportation Capital Improvement Program  administered by the Connecticut Department of Transportation. This project, if supported, will be designed by the town through a consultant agreement.

Because both town and state policy is to inform community members about projects like these and receive feedback, this meeting is being held. The meeting is set for Thursday, Nov. 21 at 7 p.m. in the Eastern Greenwich Civic Center’s Lower Lounge.

The current plan is to replace the Sound Beach Avenue Bridge with a new bridge structure. The town will also look to redesign the traffic circle at the Sound Beach Avenue, Laddins Rock Road and Harding Road intersection in order to make the intersection more efficient and safer for the traveling public and pedestrians. Based upon a preliminary assessment, the construction cost will be approximately $3 million.

Anyone interested in obtaining further information or providing input may do so by contacting Frank W. Petise, senior civil engineer at 203-622-7860.
