It’s always encouraging to hear about the groups and individuals who work tirelessly to keep the unique outdoor spaces of Killingworth preserved and available for all to enjoy. With that said, here’s a quick update on Chatfield Hollow’s iconic covered bridge closure.
Per the Friends of Chatfield Hollow Facebook page:
The Chatfield covered bridge remains closed to the public. Macchi Engineers has completed the land survey, wetland flagging, soil borings and historical research and documentation. The hydrologic/hydraulic modeling has been initiated and now progressing through stages of design. The permit applications and design plans should be complete in the Fall 2023.
For more backstory on this restoration and undertaking, Sarah Page Kyrcz covered this in-depth for CT Insider, in September 2022.
