BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- The second stage of a bridge replacement project on Route 8/25 was finished Wednesday, three days ahead of schedule.

James Redeker, Commissioner of the Department of Transportation, attended a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, officially reopening Route 8/25 in Bridgeport. Northbound and southbound traffic was reopened at full capacity, with four lanes of traffic in each direction.

Route 8/25 and local roads, Lindley Street and Capitol Avenue, may continue to experience minor impacts to facilitate ongoing restoration work in the project area. The Route 8 Bridge Replacement Project is scheduled to be completed in September.

The replacement project involves the replacement of the superstructures (beams and concrete decks) of several bridges on Route 8/25 in Bridgeport, approximately two miles north of Interstate 95.

Also included in the project is the rehabilitation of a large retaining wall supporting Route 8 and capacity improvements to two intersections on Lindley Street adjacent to Route 8 northbound.
