Norwalk Walk Bridge Project Information

The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) is undertaking the Walk Bridge Program to replace the deteriorating railroad bridge over the Norwalk River in Norwalk, CT. One of the oldest movable bridges in the country, the Walk Bridge is a critical transportation link on the Northeast Corridor between Washington, D.C., New York City and Boston. The replacement of the Walk Bridge also requires work on the railroad embankments on each side of the river and retaining walls, replacement of track, catenary, traction power and other railroad systems, the removal of the existing high towers, the construction of a new fender system in the river and construction at the nearby Fort Point Street Bridge.
