This truss-span bridge is 1,280 ft. long with 8 spans including 320-ft. truss span, 50 ft. high and 60 ft. wide.
The Church Street South Extension project provided a new steel truss bridge over the New Haven Interlocking and Rail Yard, directly linking downtown New Haven and the Long Wharf and waterfront areas. To minimize disruption in the rail yard and improve work-zone safety for a crew working over active rail lines, ConnDot required that this portion of the bridge be completed in a single weekend night.
