On March 14, 2024, at 7 p.m. in the Town Hall Meeting Room,the Town of Greenwich Department of Public Works (DPW) is hosting a public information meetingto share the preliminary design of the North Street Bridge. Read the full notice here.
The North Street Bridge (bridge number 056-047) is located over West Brothers Brook, which is between Cotswood Road and Macpherson Drive.
This critical project will replace the North Street Bridge, which is located on a major arterial road highly traveled by commuters and is approximately 0.9 miles away from the nearest school. The bridge was originally built in 1909 and rebuilt in 1950. After the last inspection on March 7, 2022, the bridge was deemed in critical condition. This resulted in emergency repairs and the hiring of WMC Consulting Engineers to create a preliminary bridge design.
Timing and Next Steps
The project is currently in the preliminary design phase. The cost of this project will be covered under the Local Transportation Capital Improvement Program (LOTCIP) with funds reimbursable to the Town at 100 percent for construction and construction inspection.
This proposed project is in the Selectman's Budget for Fiscal Year 2023/24 under the Capital Improvement Plan. Project funding requires approval from the BET and RTM during the budget review process. The estimated project cost is $3,000,000, which is reimbursed by the LOTCIP grant.
