Design for the Rehabilitation of the Sherman Street Bridges
The preliminary engineering is now nearly complete for the Sherman Street Bridge replacement project.  Many people are unaware that there are actually two bridges at this Yantic River crossing - one conveys the main river channel (aka, the Canada Bridge) and the other, approximately 100 feet to the east of the Canada Bridge, conveys overflow water when the Yantic River rises.

The Preliminary Engineering Phase will culminate with a selection of bridge types for the replacement of both bridges.  This will be followed by the design of the bridges, permitting and CTDOT approval.

Design for the Rehabilitation of the Sunnyside Street Bridge
The design for the rehabilitation of the historic Sunnyside Street Bridge in the Yantic Village is underway.  The City's consulting engineer is developing detailed plans to repair the parapet walls that flank both sides of the bridge, improve pedestrian access, repair stone masonry sections, relocate overhead utilities, and resurface the road.  The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is funding 80% of the project cost through the Federal Local Bridge Program, which is administered by the State of Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT).

All agencies agree that preserving the existing look of the bridge is paramount in selecting the final project design.  The City will seek the input of the Yantic Village residents in the coming months, prior to selecting a final design alternative.
