The Naugatuck Valley Council of Governments will hold a stakeholder kickoff meeting on the design of renovations and enhancements to the Derby-Shelton Bridge over the Housatonic River on Tuesday, Aug. 22 at the Avalon Shelton, 185 Canal St., Shelton at 6 p.m. The meeting will provide stakeholders an opportunity to meet the design team and learn about the project, including preliminary concept plans and an anticipated project timeline.
The intent of the project is to create an “aesthetically pleasing” public space along the Derby-Shelton Bridge and provide an attractive gateway to the downtown areas of Derby and Shelton. It is being designed by AECOM under contract to the NVCOG. Construction will be advertised and administered by the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT).
