The CTDOT is rehabilitating the East Haddam Swing Bridge (a 2-year project). Last November, the Department announced that the vehicular weight restriction was being lowered to 16 tons during reconstruction.
Over the last couple of months, the CSP and DMV have been performing spot enforcement, revealing numerous instances of truckers attempting to cross the bridge while violating this reduced weight restriction.
Ensure your company and drivers who travel the route are familiar with the restrictions. Any truck that exceeds 16 tons is restricted from using the East Haddam Swing Bridge, which carries Route 82 over the Connecticut River in Haddam and East Haddam, until further notice.
