The Connecticut Department of Transportation is announcing that construction work will begin on September 26, 2011 for the intersection improvements on Route 195 at Chaffeeville Road and Clover Mill Road #1 in the town of Mansfield.
Chaffeeville Road and Clover Mill #1 Road will be reconstructed and realigned to provide better sightline with Route 195 with drainage improvements being installed throughout the project. A 550 foot section of Route 195, adjacent to Chaffeeville Road, will be reconstructed at a lower elevation to provide better sightline. The remaining portion of Route 195 will be milled and a bituminous overlay will be installed for the entire 1400 foot length of Route 195. New roadway signs and pavement markings will be incorporated as part of this project.
