RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Jammed, backed-up traffic on Route 35 in Ridgefield due to a bridge replacement could see some relief next week, according to the state engineer in charge of the project, said the Ridgefield Press.
John Dunham, the engineer in charge, said that the daily alternating one-way traffic from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. should only continue into next week, then the alternating traffic pattern should be less (weather permitting), according to the Ridgefield Press.
Following the completion of that portion of the bridge replacement, as the focus shifts to building a temporary bridge on the east side of the road, the closures will continue to be less frequent -- maybe six or eight times a month -- until late spring or early summer. Once the temporary bridge is complete and a third lane is added, lane shifts and alternating traffic should reduce to once or twice a month, added the Ridgefield Press.
