Bridge work update: The Town of Granby is commencing projects to replace/rehabilitate Moosehorn Rd Bridge, Donahue Rd Bridge and Simsbury Rd Bridge. The bridge replacement/rehabilitation projects are receiving Federal grant funds under the Federal Local Bridge Program administered by the Connecticut Department of Transportation.
Moosehorn plans have changed. We will not be closing the bridge to all traffic on a weekend but rather installing a temporary bridge on the upstream side to accommodate traffic flow. To date, there has been some minor work in the area with the greater part of the project beginning in April 2023. Completion is expected in November 2023.
Donahue Rd. Bridge has also started with preliminary work, and we are in the process of hiring a construction company to start work in April 2023. Please note that while the replacement/rehabilitation is underway the road in the immediate area of the bridge will be closed to all traffic. Completion is expected to be in November 2023.
Simsbury Rd. Bridge located near Holcomb Hill Rd, is also scheduled for replacement/rehabilitation. As of this month, plans are being developed and rights of ways are being determined. Later this year a firm will be hired that will be responsible for inspections throughout the project. In 2024, a construction company will be hired, with work starting in April 2024 with completion expected in November 2024.
