Pavement Preservation Project on Interstate 91 in Windsor Scheduled to Begin Tuesday, July 19, 2011
The Connecticut Department of Transportation is announcing that construction activities are to begin on Tuesday night, July 19, 2011, on a six mile stretch of I-91 in Windsor from north of Exit 36 (Route 178) to Exit 44 (Route 5).
The project consists of micro-milling of bridge decks, repairs to rutted sections of pavement, and replacement of catch basin structures, median barriers and bridge joints. The entire section of I-91 will then be overlaid with a thin surface treatment known as Ultra-thin bonded HMA which is one of several pavement preservation strategies used by the Department to extend the service life of the existing highway system.
LANE CLOSURE INFO - Night work:
- I-91, Sunday – Thursday and Friday may be scheduled as rain day from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.
