Overview: The Devon Bridge is 1,067-feet long and carries four New Haven Line tracks over the Housatonic River between Stratford and Milford, CT. The bridge is comprised of seven spans, with one that opens in the center. The bridge was constructed in 1905 and underwent rehabilitation in 1990. Like the state’s other movable bridges, Devon has experienced severe deterioration. In 2010, ConnDOT funded a feasibility study to examine the engineering needs on the bridge and options for improvement. The study recommended a full replacement of the bridge, as well as short-term repairs to ensure reliability and safety. In 2012, ConnDOT initiated construction on these short-term repairs.
