Bridge Replacement on Barnum Avenue Cutoff

State Representative Joe Gresko, (D)
121st Connecticut House District

Dear Neighbor,

Drivers can expect delays because road work is underway to replace a bridge on Route 1 (Barnum Avenue Cutoff) over the Metro-North Railroad. Crews are reconstructing 1,200 feet of Route 1 to install new retaining walls and to improve pedestrian safety with new sidewalks.

This roadwork may affect your morning or afternoon drive because at least one lane on Barnum Avenue Cutoff and Longbrook Avenue will be closed, Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Please slow down in the work zone or take an alternate route.

The entire project costs about $18.5 million and is expected to be finished in September 2025.

As always, please feel free to reach out to me at the Capitol at 860-842-0363 or email me at
