DOT to hold information meeting on Groton bridge replacement

The state Department of Transportation will hold a virtual public information meeting at 7 p.m. Monday on the planned replacement of the bridge carrying Groton Long Point Road over the Amtrak railroad. “This project will address the existing structural deficiencies and the substandard minimum vertical clearance of the bridge traveling over Amtrak Railroad,” Project Manager Francisco T. Fadul said in a statement. “We encourage the public to attend this meeting to share their feedback with the CTDOT project team to incorporate into the design.” The DOT said construction for the approximately $13.8 million project is expected to start in the fall of 2026, depending on availability of funding, acquisition of rights of way and permits.
