Pavement Preservation Project on Interstate I-395 in the Towns of East Lyme, Waterford and Montiville
The Connecticut Department of Transportation announced today that the Department’s Office of Engineering is developing plans to resurface northbound and southbound travel lanes of a section of Interstate I-395 through the Towns of East Lyme, Waterford and Montville. The specific pavement limits for this section begin approximately 800 feet south of the East Lyme/Waterford town line (mile marker 00.00) and extend to approximately 900 feet south of Bridge No. 0261 – Moxley Road in the Town of Montville, (mile marker 5.60) a total distance of approximately 5.6 miles.
"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. 152-151.
