Officials explore ideas for North Stonington Road Bridge in Old Mystic

Officials are exploring ideas for the North Stonington Road Bridge in Old Mystic, which has been out for more than a decade. The bridge was found to be in poor condition following a 500-year storm in March 2010, Groton Town Manager John Burt said. A safety check after the storm and subsequent inspection revealed several issues, according to a document from the Town of Groton. The cost to replace the bridge is estimated at $1.24 million, Burt said. A grant will cover about half of the cost, with the towns of Groton and Stonington needing to pick up the rest. Chesebrough said there is no money in Stonington’s proposed 2022-23 Capital Improvement Plan budget to replace the bridge. She said the town is doing an assessment of its bridges to see what projects need to be done and that will be presented to the Board of Finance after budget season.
