2-year construction project on Arrigoni Bridge begins today

Traffic is expected to be reduced down to one lane

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. — Starting today a two-year-long construction project will begin on the Arrigoni Bridge. 

If your commute takes you through Middlesex County, you should start adding extra time to your routine!

The project will be split into three different stages. It'll consist of replacing the bridge decks and making repairs to improve the bridge's structural capacity. 

There will also be a new fence system placed.

While all this is happening, traffic is expected to be reduced down to one lane. 

The Department of Transportation is reminding drivers to keep a safe speed and be aware while construction is ongoing.
