NORWALK, Conn. – A Norwalk road reopened Tuesday after nearly a year, making driving easier once again for many Norwalk residents.
The Rampart Road overpass at Interstate 95 officially reopened at 10 a.m. when city officials met with a Connecticut Department of Transportation representative for a ceremonial ribbon cutting.
The road serves as a shortcut to Connecticut Avenue for many Flax Hill Road drivers. The DOT project consisted of replacing steel girders and concrete deck and making safety improvements to the overpass, which was built in 1958.
The work was finished ahead of the mid-June date required in the state's contract with Rotha Contracting Co. of Avon.
Workers have been working at night under spotlights on the bridge recently.
