Nutley bridge to undergo summer construction

Posted: Updated:
NUTLEY -

A nearly 125-year-old bridge in Nutley is due to be replaced.

Essex County Executive Joe DiVincenzo announced that construction on the Centre Street Bridge will begin this summer.

The bridge will be entirely closed to traffic, meaning detours will be put in place.

The bridge has been classified as "structurally deficient" and recently received a new weight limit of 15 tons.

The project is scheduled to be completed by December.
