“It is the Department’s policy to keep the public informed and involved when such projects are undertaken,” said Marie. “It is important that the community share its concerns with us to assist in the project’s development.” If there is adequate interest, an informational meeting will be conducted. At this time, it is not anticipated that a formal public hearing will be necessary.
The project involves lining the existing culverts with new pipes and repairing the existing concrete headwalls as required.
The present schedule indicates that the design will be completed in June 2011, with construction anticipated to start in spring 2012. Construction activities are anticipated to last approximately three weeks with minimal disruption to traffic. At this time, it is proposed that the project will be undertaken with 80% federal and 20% state funds.
Anyone interested in receiving information on this project may do so by contacting Mr. Scott A. Hill, Manager of State Design, at (860) 594-3272, or by e-mail at email@example.com. Please make reference to State Project No. 172-394.
