Skiff Street Bridge over Mill River

The Town of Hamden is replacing the Skiff Street Bridge over the Mill River in multiple phases over the next few years. Utility work and minor clearing and site preparation began during the winter of 2016-7. Full bridge replacement construction began in the spring of 2017. The road will be open for traffic and emergency vehicles at all times; however some minor delays can be anticipated.

The businesses along Skiff Street are open and we encourage you to shop our local businesses.


Some minor delays can be anticipated for traffic when construction vehicles enter and exit the immediate work area. The road will be restricted to one lane in each direction during the majority of the work. There will be construction equipment and workers in and around the bridge. Please use caution and leave the crews plenty of work space.
