River Road in New Haven closed through Aug. 27

NEW HAVEN — Don’t try to drive from one end of River Road in New Haven to the other.
Construction crews closed part of the road that runs between Routes 116 and 7 on Monday as they began reconstruction of Bridge 10, which spans the New Haven River at the end of Halpin Road.
The bridge, which is 1.1 miles east of Route 7, is closed to all traffic, and according to the contractor’s schedule it will remain closed through Aug. 27.
During the bridge closure period, a full replacement of the span will occur. Crews will be dismantling and removing the old bridge, which was built in 1934, and constructing a new one in the same location. Construction updates will be issued throughout the closure period.   
The town will not provide a marked traffic detour route during the closure. Motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes.
There are signs up at either end of River Road, but folks are complaining to people at the town office that at least one of these signs isn’t visible until you pull onto the road.
Updates will be posted at www.roadworkupdates.com.
