The historic Pleasure Beach Bridge located in Bridgeport which once connected the city’s East Side of Bridgeport to the small island will be getting demolished within the next few weeks, city officials said. City officials said they have contracted with Terry Contracting for the project, with the hopes of solving many safety issues. The bridge’s demolition will cost approximately $2.7 million, with half of the funds coming from state bonding, a quarter from the city, and a quarter from the American Rescue Plan Act. The demolition will continue through the summer and possibly into the fall of 2023. The channel will still be open to all marine traffic unless noted otherwise by the Harbor Master and the US Coast Guard.
