When will Stamford’s Cedar Heights Road bridge be done? 12 months late, officials say.

A project to replace the bridge on Cedar Heights Road is now expected to be finished in November — a year later than initially scheduled. City Engineer Lou Casolo has said that the contractor for the “extremely complex” project, A. Vitti Excavators, has needed to submit plans for handling the flow of the Rippowam River, demolishing the more than 90-year old bridge and supporting utility lines to an inspection firm before moving from one stage of construction to the next. The original completion date was Nov. 30, 2023. A. Vitti Excavators committed to working during the winter and asked for an extension to substantially complete the project by May 31 of this year. Then the date changed to June 30. Cedar Heights Road, which is just south of the Merritt Parkway, has been closed to thru traffic during the project. A detour takes cars along High Ridge Road and Wire Mill Road, where another bridge is in line for construction.
