The New Milford Public Works Department is starting replacement of a bridge on Aspetuck Ridge Road.

Bridge 05111 is located near the northern end of the Aspetuck Ridge Road, just south of the intersection with West Meetinghouse Road.

The road in that area is closed to traffic.

The contract length is 203 days. Expected substantial completion date would be Oct. 21.

Local traffic is asked to use alternate routes, while through traffic is asked to follow detour signs.

All properties will be accessible at all times during the construction.
