The Connecticut Department of Transportation (DOT) will begin a bridge rehabilitation project today on Flat Rock Hill Road in the town of Old Lyme. The DOT will be replacing the bridge deck and parapets to the bridge that bears local traffic over I-95. It will also be making modifications to the substructure and making drainage improvements at the approaches of the bridge.
The $3.05 million project, which was awarded to New England Road, Inc. on Nov. 14, 2012, isn't scheduled to be completed until November, 2014. That is likely to have longterm affects on local traffic patterns.
