Walk Bridge Design
The Walk Bridge Program enhances safety, reliability and ease of travel throughout Norwalk via a half-dozen interrelated road, rail and utility projects that preserve and improve upon Norwalk’s key assets like the railroad infrastructure and Norwalk River. These projects are coordinated simultaneously to take advantage of scheduled track outages and streamline work. This approach reduces rail disruptions, lowers costs and shortens construction durations that would be necessary to complete the infrastructure improvements individually. The Program promotes economic development through infrastructure investment, the protection of potential up-river development, increased railroad reliability and reduced road congestion for residents, commuters and tourists.
