Bridge construction to start in Monroe

April 14, 2017 GMT

MONROE — The Department of Transportation will start construction on a full replacement of a bridge on Route 111 near Ryegate Terrance that carries over an unnamed brook.

The construction will begin on April 24 and is scheduled to finish in November.

It will be a two stage project, with the first stage maintaining the existing bridge while the western part of the roadways, sidewalks, drainage, and the bridge, itself are constructed.

The second stage will focus on the eastern part of the new bridge, with traffic being shifted to the portion of the road constructed in the first stage.

Local detours will also be put in place as Ryegate Terrace will be closed during the second stage.
