Steel Pile Structural Condition Inspection Scheduled for Bridge 01349 (Cribari Bridge) in Westport
The Connecticut Department of Transportation is announcing the scheduled structural condition inspection of several steel piles supporting the Cribari Bridge which carries Route 136 over the Saugatuck River in Westport. The inspection process is anticipated to take place on October 10, 2017. The inspection is expected to be completed within 2 weeks of the start date.
The pile inspection work will be performed on limited portions of several concrete protected steel piles that support the swing-span rest-pier (Pier 2). The intent of this inspection is to verify structural condition of the piles and gather information for assessing the rehabilitation needs of this bridge. There will be no impacts to vehicular traffic, nor will there be any restrictions to marine traffic, as all work will be outside of the navigable channel.
