Public works announces Maple Street bridge closure

NAUGATUCK — The Maple Street bridge is scheduled to be closed for parts of three days this week.

The bridge, which is under construction and only open one-way, will be closed to all traffic from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, the Public Works Department announced in a press release.
