The Department of Transportation awarded the Connecticut Department of Transportation with $158 million to rehabilitate the northbound structure of the Gold Star Memorial Bridge, which is part of the Interstate 95 corridor over the Thames River between New London and Groton, Connecticut. LIUNA members are hard at work rehabilitating this important thoroughfare.
The bridge’s northbound span is the longest bridge in Connecticut with five lanes of traffic and nearly 60,000 vehicles crossing daily. It has been undergoing undergoing rehabilitation since 2020. With this new grant, future construction work on the northbound structure will be accelerated with the bridge fully operational at an earlier date.
