At the meeting, the public will have an opportunity to learn about the project and how to get involved early in the planning process.
The meeting will consist of an “open house” at which the public can view project study area maps, graphics and various project data and information. The project team will make a short presentation at 5 PM and again at 7 PM. Each presentation will be followed by opportunities for public comment and questions.
Members of the public are welcome to attend one or both presentations.
The Department strongly encourages public participation at this informational meeting. The public opinion and information collected during the planning process will be an important component in developing long–term recommendations for the I-84 Hartford corridor.
CTDOT is evaluating the I-84 Hartford corridor in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration, the Capitol Region Council of Governments, the City of Hartford, the Town of East Hartford, the Town of West Hartford, and other local agencies and stakeholders.
The purpose of the I-84 Hartford Project is to address the highway’s structural deficiencies, traffic flow and safety problems, while maintaining access for the City of Hartford and adjacent communities. At the same time, the I-84 Hartford Project will strive to reduce the highway’s adverse impact and footprint on the city, while integrating it more closely into the regional multimodal and interstate transportation system, both existing and planned.
A public advisory committee, comprised of a wide range of stakeholders has been, and will continue to be, instrumental in guiding each of these initiatives.
