  • Silver Bridge Renovation Project To Start Soon

    Work crews will soon be seen on and around Silver Bridge in Sandy Hook, as the state Department of Transportation (DOT) begins a multimillion-dollar project to renovate and rehabilitate the decaying truss-style span that carries Glen Road over the Lake Zoar section of the Housatonic River, linking Sandy Hook to Southbury.

    DOT spokesman Kevin Nursick said April 7 that the bridge project technically has begun, although no workers were spotted at the bridge that day.

    The state Department of Transportation (DOT) plans to select by October the firm which will make major renovations to the steel-truss span over the Lake Zoar section of the Housatonic River, commonly known as Silver Bridge. The bridge links Glen Road in Sandy Hook to River Road in Southbury.

  • Renovation Project Announced: Glen Road ‘Silver Bridge’ To Be Silver Again

    What locally has long been known as “The Silver Bridge” will regain its argentine luster after the state completes an estimated $5 million renovation project intended to physically rehabilitate the steel-truss span at Glen Road, which crosses the Lake Zoar section of the Housatonic River, linking Sandy Hook to Southbury.

    A state Department of Transportation (DOT) spokesman said this week that the two-lane, 308-foot-long bridge, which currently is painted brown, will be repainted a silvery color, based on local requests.

  • State Completing Design For Glen Road Bridge Improvements

    The state Department of Transportation (DOT) is completing its design for the rehabilitation of the Glen Road bridge, which crosses above the Lake Zoar section of the Housatonic River, linking Sandy Hook to River Road in Southbury.

    DOT spokesman Kevin Nursick said this week he expects that DOT will advertise the project for construction bids in mid-June.

    It is expected that the bridge rehabilitation project would begin in April 2014, he said.
