Old Greenwich braces for detour on Sound Beach Avenue for bridge project: It’s ‘going to be a mess’

A detour will be set up soon along the main access to Old Greenwich — and to the beach — as construction begins to replace a bridge on Sound Beach Avenue near Binney Park. The area will be closed to thru traffic from April 11 to July 1, with vehicles detoured to Harding Road and Forest Avenue, according to the Department of Public Works. The project is one in a long list of construction work planned for the village of Old Greenwich. The curb and sidewalk work should be completed by the end of the week, Circosta Cohee said, if the weather cooperates. Additional curb and sidewalk work will be coordinated with the bridge project and the detour to ensure it does not cause additional traffic delays, she said. Many of the projects are “long overdue,” Fulton said, and will make for long-term improvements. But the “piled in” schedule, he said, will be challenging.
