Overview: The Norwalk River Bridge is 562-feet long and is a four-track swing bridge in Norwalk, CT. One of only two swing bridges on the NEC, the bridge was constructed in 1889. Its original swing span is still in operation today. Since its construction, the bridge has experienced increasing deterioration. Age and deferred maintenance have damaged both the electrical and mechanical components of the bridge. ConnDOT hopes to complete a full rehabilitation of the existing bridge to improve reliability and decrease congestion on the New Haven Line. Currently proposed work includes rehabilitation of the tracks approaching the bridge, structural repairs to the bridge itself, and upgrades to the bridge’s mechanical and electrical systems.
