The Program is happy to host you or your organization for a formal presentation outlining information about project scope, schedules, benefits, design, and construction. Presentations can be tailored based on your interests, including overviews of the CP243 Interlocking, the Danbury Branch Dockyard, the Fort Point Street Bridge Replacement and road realignment, the East Avenue Bridge Replacement and roadway improvements, and the Osborne Avenue bridge replacement.
The Program is proud of our educational initiative featuring interactive presentations. This hands-on exploration of various disciplines in the STEM field teaches students about engineering, construction, and bridges using the Walk Bridge Replacement Project as a real-life example. The Ã la carte program offers unique learning experiences, tailored to fit the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and accommodates grades Pre-K through 12.
Classes can take a field trip to the Walk Bridge Welcome Center, participate in engineering and construction-related activities, take part in a virtual reality experience, and once Walk Bridge construction starts, take a tour of the construction site. The education program also travels to local schools for presentations and participates in educational events.
