If you are coming from the North, you will need to pass under three bridges if transiting down the Norwalk River from the Wall Street center of town. The first, a turnpike highway fixed bridge, about 0.9 mile below the Wall Street bridge has a clearance of 60 feet. The second, the Metro-North railroad swing bridge just above the highway bridge, has a clearance of 16 feet; an overhead power cable with a clearance of 203 feet crosses the river near the railroad bridge. The third, "Washington Street Bridge" bascule bridge at South Norwalk, has a clearance of 8 feet. The bridgetenders at the State Route 136 bridge and the railroad bridge monitor VHF-FM channel 13; call signs KXJ-707 and KU–6035, respectively. You will probably need to make reservations to open the Metro North bridge though most boats can get under and the Washington St bridge is closed during rush hours.
