Governor Malloy joined Department of Transportation Commissioner James Redeker and Mayor Harry Rilling Tuesday in Norwalk to announce the Walk Bridge design is in progress. 

As we've reported, in November the State Bond Commission approved more than $53 million for state department of transportation to begin work to replace the 118 year old Walk Bridge. The state bond money will be supplemented by a $161 million federal grant, which was awarded to the department last September under the Sandy Resiliency Project Program for states most affected by Storm Sandy.

Construction on an entirely new bridge is expected to begin in 2016 and completed in 2020 and interim repairs addressing the bridge's rail travel disruption have already been completed. Under guidelines issued by the U.S. Coast Guard the bridge may not be open during peak train hours, which are Monday and Friday from 4:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. Four hours' notice is required before the bridge will be opened from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m., and two hours' notice is required from 4 a.m. to 9 p.m.
