Bridge To Somewhere

The North Avenue bridge over the Aspetuck River — the one near Coleytown Road, right by Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward’s house — will be closed for 6 months for reconstruction, beginning March 18.

It’s a nice short cut to and from Weston. Drivers will have to take detours.

Setting aside the issue of why it will take 6 months to work on a bridge that’s about 2 feet long, here’s another question: What will happen when another bridge on North Avenue — the one over the Merritt Parkway — goes under the knife?

That’s a much more major route, connecting 3 schools.

And how long will that one take?
