MNRR construction of Walk Bridge
Posted by blue streak 1 on Friday, February 24, 2017 8:51 PM

Starting thread to follow the construction of the replacement Walk Bridges.  Apparently for duplication sakes will be 2 separate  2 track lift bridges replacing the single 4 track swing bridge.

CT DOT is starting preliminary surveying for approaches of the bridge.

Two parallel vertical lift bridges make a certain amount of sense.  It lessens the weight (and corresponding inertia) of the bridge structure that has to be moved when it is raised or lowered.

The daily commute is part of everyday life but I get two rides a day out of it. Paul
