Project No. 0056-0311, Pavement Preservation on Route 15 (Merritt Parkway) in Greenwich
The purpose of this program is to enhance pavement performance by using cost-effective treatments to extend the service life of the existing pavement. A section of Route 15 in the Town of Greenwich has been identified as a candidate for this program. The Department is developing plans to mill and overlay the bituminous pavement on Route 15 from the New York State line to the Stamford Town line.
The present schedule indicates that the design will be completed in November, 2012 , with construction anticipated to start in Summer , 2013. This project will be undertaken with 80 % Federal and 20 % State funds.
It is the Department's policy to keep the public informed and involved when such projects are undertaken. It is important that the community share its concerns with us to assist in the project's development. It is not anticipated that an informational meeting or a formal public hearing will be held for this project due to the limited nature of the proposed work.
Anyone interested in receiving information on this project may do so by contacting Mr. Timothy M. Wilson, Manager of Highway Design, at 860) 594-3189, or by e-mail at Timothy.Wilson@ct.gov. Please make reference to State Project Number 0056-0311.
