The city reopened the Backus Avenue bridge near Danbury Fair mall, which connects western Danbury with downtown and the downtown to the main post office, Friday. The bridge re-opened after seven months of repair work.
Since April, drivers have had to either drive around Danbury Airport or use Mill Plain Road as an alternative to connect western Danbury with the center or even with the Danbury Fair mall.
The cost of the repair is tagged at 1.25 million.
The Patch will have a full write-up on the opening of the bridge tomorrow...
