WESTPORT, Conn. -- A rehabilitation study report on the Saugatuck River Bridge, also known as the William F. Cribari Bridge, is now available on the Connecticut Department of Transportation website.
“After initial review of the [report], the DOT has identified two possible options to remediate the bridge: major rehabilitation and structure replacement,” said Westport First Selectman Jim Marpe.
Marpe cited one key passage from the study: “The lifecycle costs for both options are essentially the same and, as such, it is recommended that further in-depth studies of various bridge replacement alternatives be completed before any determinations can be made whether to rehabilitate the bridge or to replace it.”
A public information meeting about the matter has been scheduled for Wednesday, June 15, at 7 p.m. in the Westport Town Hall Auditorium, 110 Myrtle Ave.
“I encourage interested parties to review the report online and to attend the information session on June 15,” said Marpe.
