North Avenue Bridge To Open Monday!

Sources say that on Monday, the Merritt Parkway North Avenue bridge will open again to 2-way traffic. It’s been closed completely for the past 2 months.

The bridge reopens a mere 14 months after Connecticut Department of Transportation work began. It’s just 12 months behind schedule.

A few cosmetic details remain. But the project is essentially completed.

Just in time for the new closure, a few hundred yards away on North Compo.

These lights -- unused for the past couple of months, because North Avenue was closed at the Merritt Parkway -- will soon be removed.

  1. It’s nice to know that DOT will get this one open before they close North Compo. Having both down at the same time would be a nightmare.
