The project consists of the replacement of Bridge # 06583 as part of the Fix it First Transportation Initiative. The existing structure is a culvert deteriorated and undermined along the footings and will be replaced with a 70-foot long, 4-foot diameter corrugated aluminum pipe with a concrete headwall at the inlet and outlet.
The proposed 32-foot road width will be reconstructed on either side of the structure to accommodate a 12-foot travel lane and 4-foot shoulder in each direction and new guide rail will be installed.
DOT Project No. 0037-0099 was awarded to Guerrera Construction Company, Inc., of Oxford, CT, on January 31, 2013, at a value of $ 211,177.00 and is scheduled for completion by September 22, 2013.
