Photo: The Mianus River Bridge, Cos Cob (Fairfield County, Connecticut) is a span that carries Interstate 95 over the Mianus River in the Cos Cob section of Greenwich, Connecticut. It is the second bridge on the site. The original bridge collapsed in 1983, killing three motorists. The replacement span is officially named the Michael L. Morano Bridge, after a state senator who represented Greenwich.
Sen. Boucher / Listen: ‘Connecticut Needs to Take Care of Its Core Functions’
Connecticut has 308 structurally deficient bridges, according to a Washington-based transportation group. Instead of taking care of them, the state has spent money to buy a tennis tournament, private parking garages, and other private projects.
Listen as I discuss this problem with WDRC’s Brad Davis on his Talk of Connecticut radio program. I tell him, “Connecticut needs to take care of its core functions.”
