The Bridge over the East Branch of the Mianus River in Stamford is being replaced. And a meeting was held at the City’s Government Center this week to discuss the project.  The bridge, located along Route 104 on Long Ridge Road, sees an average of over 7,000 vehicles daily, according to a 2013 Connecticut Department of Transportation report. Built in 1933, officials say it’s time for an upgrade.

The new design will correct the bridge’s structural and hydraulic deficiencies, improve the stream habitat, and widen the roadway from 28 to 32 feet. Many at the meeting were residents living in the area. Their main concern, how construction would impact traffic.

Two construction plans were proposed at the meeting. Option 1 would close Route 104 at the bridge, creating a traffic detour for three to four weeks. Under this plan, the project would be finished in less than a year. Option 2 suggests keeping the bridge open by alternating traffic from one side of the road to the other, but would take almost two years to complete.

Work is expected to start in the Spring of 2017. The estimated cost of the State funded project is close to $2 million for option 1 and over $3 million for option 2. For more information, visit
