This bridge was closed to traffic in September 2016 and is being replaced by a fill. The road will be lowered a little and fill ramps installed each side to carry the Quinebaug Rail Trail up to road level. The rail bed has now been cleared all the way through Dudley from the CT state line to the French River.

Photos taken last September 28th and this April 3rd are attached.
