Stamford Mill Road bridge closed after steel beams found with ‘severe deterioration,’ report reveals

A small Stamford bridge on Mill Road that was closed down last week was in “critical condition,” with “significant cracking” of the pavement and “severe deterioration” of the steel beams underneath, a construction report states. The condition of the bridge, which is on Mill Road just east of the intersection with Old Long Ridge Road resulted in the closure of Mill Road, Stamford police announced May 29 on social media. Traffic will not be allowed to enter the approximately one-mile street at the intersection with Old Long Ridge Road, which means motorists will only be able to access Mill Road by entering through Rock Rimmon Road. The bridge, which was built in 1960 and runs over a small unnamed brook, is about 19 feet wide and is supported by 12-foot steel beams underneath as well as stone abutments on each end.
