Pavement Preservation Project on Interstate I-91 in the Towns of Cromwell and Rocky Hill
The Connecticut Department of Transportation is announcing that the Department’s Office of Engineering is developing plans to resurface southbound travel lanes of a section of Interstate I-91 through the Towns of Cromwell and Rocky Hill. The specific pavement limits for this project begin at the I-91 bridge over Route 372/Berlin Road in the Town of Cromwell (mile marker 25.73) and end at the SSR 411/West Street bridge over I-91 in the Town of Rocky Hill, a total distance of approximately 3.5 miles (log mile 29.35).
"It is the Department's policy to keep the public informed and involved when such projects are undertaken," said Commissioner Joseph F. Marie. “It is important that the community share its concerns with us to assist in the project's development.” At this time, it is not anticipated that a public informational meeting or a formal public hearing will be necessary.
The work is maintenance oriented, with a purpose of improving the existing bituminous wearing surface and extending the service life of the pavement. Bituminous concrete pavement overlay and new pavement markings will be installed. The right shoulder and ramps will not be milled and paved.
Construction is anticipated to start in spring 2010. The duration of work is anticipated to last two to three months. This project will be undertaken with federal funds under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
Anyone interested in receiving information on this project may do so by contacting Mr. James H. Norman, Manager of State Design, at (860) 594-3272, or by e-mail at James.Norman@ct.gov. Please make reference to State Project No. 33-125.
