State crews will be replacing a
bridge on I-84 westbound in Danbury this weekend, forcing the highway to
close for the weekend near the New York border.
The construction will likely result in increased traffic on the surrounding backroads, including in Brookfield.
crews have already built two replacement bridges next to the east- and
westbound bridges over Dingle Ridge Road, near exit 1. On Sept. 21 and
22, workers will shut the highway, demolish the existing westbound
bridge and slide the new bridge in place.
process will be repeated on the eastbound side the next weekend after,
though detours for that project won't lead through Brookfield.
