East Haddam First Selectman Mark B. Walter announced today (Jan. 23) that the Town of East Haddam, CT is contemplating a project to replace/rehabilitate the Johnsonville Road Bridge over the Moodus River.

The bridge replacement/ rehabilitation project would receive Federal funds under the Federal Local Bridge Program administered by the Connecticut Department of Transportation.

If undertaken, the project design is expected to begin in early 2013, with construction likely in 2014.

Walter notes that local and state policy encourages getting information to citizens on such projects and he encourages people to raise any concerns with municipal officials early in the planning process.

Questions about the project can be directed to First Selectman Mark B. Walter, 7 Main St./P.O. Box K, East Haddam, CT 06423 or call (860) 873-5020.

The cost of the bridge replacement/rehabilitation would be covered 80 percent via reimbursement from Federal aid; the remaining 20 percent would be paid from municipal funds.

[According to the CT Department of Transportation site, federal aid would total $1,340,526.]

Federal aid for the project was authorized under the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) administered by the Federal Highway Administration and the Connecticut Department of Transportation (DOT)

    I pray to God that the photo that you posted in this article of the wooden covered bridge in Johnsonville is NOT the bridge that is being repaired/replaced?
