STRATFORD, Conn. -- Need to learn more about the project on the Metro-North bridge that carries Route 1 over the train tracks in Stratford? Do you have some input on the project?

The Town of Stratford, along with the state Department of Transportation, will hold a public meeting Thursday, Dec. 17, on the project.

The meeting will be at 7 p.m. at Town Hall, 2725 Main St.

Bridge No. 00326 is slated for replacement, using "Geosynthetic Reinforced Soil abutments and an integrated approach roadway system," according to the firm AI Engineers .

The existing three-span structure will be replaced with a single-span structure, carrying four lanes of traffic with an overall width of 67 feet.
