Starting Monday morning, the East Norwalk train station and part of East Avenue will be temporarily closed due to the construction of the Walk Bridge Replacement Project.
The project is expected to wrap up by March 31.
News 12 Connecticut’s Angelica Toruno spoke with riders about how these closures will affect their commute.
"Now I got to go to SoNo," one rider said.
"Hopefully it'll be better, that's what we hope, right?" a resident said.
While construction is underway, the portion under the railroad track on East Avenue between Fort Point Street and Winfield Street will also be closed.
"This is where we get gas…we sometimes come down and have dinner. So, it's going to be tough getting around,” one commuter said.
Pedestrians will still be able to walk through the area, but drivers will have to detour through Point Street and Van Zant Street.
"It's really going to impact the traffic,” another resident said.
Metro-North trains will not be able to stop in East Norwalk during the renovation. The station’s parking garage will still be open and have a free shuttle service to and from the South Norwalk (SoNo) station.
