Stamford Route 1 bridge project finishes early

The $15 million project to replace a 1958 bridge near Route 1 has been completed early. Crews demolished two bridge spans that carry Route 1 over I-95 and installed new ones using what Lamont called an “innovative” construction method called accelerated bridge construction. With traditional construction methods, a project of this scale would have taken two years to complete, leading to daily traffic delays, Lamont said. The new method caused construction to be completed “in what felt like the blink of an eye,” Lamont said.
