The Walk Bridge Replacement Program

The Norwalk River Railroad (Walk) Bridge was built in 1896 and has outlived its intended service life. It carries four railroad tracks and approximately 175 trains with 125,000 passengers daily.

The Walk Bridge has been subject to continued operational failures, is vulnerable to damage from harsh weather conditions, and requires replacement.
