[ARCHIVED] Station Road Bridge: Update Meeting

Statoin Rd. Bridge News

There will be an Update Meeting on the status of the closed Station Road Bridge on Wednesday, December 19, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. in the Bangs Community Center.


At this meeting, the Town will be joined by its Consulting Engineer, CDM Smith, who has been engaged to move the project forward.

The Town’s initial focus has been on expediting designing, permitting, procuring, and installing a temporary bridge.

Once the temporary bridge is in place, the Town will move toward designing, permitting, procuring, and installing a permanent bridge. Some field work that has been completed in the past month will be able to be used for the permitting of a permanent bridge.

This is the second meeting on this project. A little over a month ago, the Town updated the community on the status of the closed bridge. At that meeting, the Town addressed:

  • What happened? Why is the bridge closed?
  • What has the Town done since it has been closed?
  • What are the options for permanent replacement?
  • What are the options for a temporary bridge?
  • How long will it be closed?

Also at that meeting, the Town reported that it would be pursuing parallel paths: one to permit, design, and install a permanent bridge and one to permit, design and install a temporary bridge.

A special location on the Town’s website has been setup to make it easier for the public to track the progress of this important project, click here to visit

Additional information will be added in the very near future.
