WESTPORT, Conn. — Due to the weather, the Bridge Street bridge will not be closed for repairs Thursday and Friday as planned, First Selectman Gordon Joseloff announced Wednesday morning.

The bridge closure will be rescheduled for next week.

Original Story:

The swing bridge over the Saugatuck River on Bridge Street will be closed part of Thursday and Friday for repair work, Westport police announced.

The bridge will be closed to traffic from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days. This means Bridge Street will be impassible from Riverside to Imperial avenues, police said. Drivers are urged to use alternate routes during these times.

Repairs are expected to be completed by early April.
