Culvert Repair under Route 85 (Church Street) south of Route 207 in Hebron
The Connecticut Department of Transportation is announcing the start of construction on December 4, 2018, to replace the culvert under Route 85 (Church St.) at the Airline Trail crossing 0.4 miles north of Niles Road Hebron. Construction will involve a closure of Route 85 to facilitate construction activities beginning on December 4, 2018, through December 15, 1018. Additional daytime lane closures may be required to complete off-road work.
Traffic will be routed around the work area by use of a detour. The detour will use Route 16 to Route 207 if headed north from Colchester, and Route 207 to Route 16 if headed south from Hebron. Subsequent to the scheduled detour, traffic will be maintained on one, 11-foot lane using alternating traffic under stop-sign control.
The Airline trail is currently closed at this location and will open upon completion of the roadway work.
Motorists are urged to obey the posted speed limit and to proceed with caution through this and all other construction work zones.
