The Connecticut Department of Transportation will conduct a Public Informational Meeting concerning the replacement of a culvert, which carries Route 17A (
This project involves replacement of a deteriorating culvert system consisting of stone masonry box culverts on each side of the road, connected by a 42? asphalt coated corrugated metal pipe under the pavement. The box culvert section on the west side of the roadway has deteriorated which has resulted in settlement to the sidewalk approximately 25 feet off the roadway.
The proposed project involves replacing the existing culvert system with a 5'x4' concrete box culvert.
Construction is anticipated to begin in summer 2010 and be completed in the fall of the same year. The estimated construction cost for this project is approximately $1,000,000 and will be undertaken with Federal and State funds. Minor impacts to private property are anticipated, consisting of drainage and temporary work easements to access the construction site.
The Public Informational Meeting is being held to afford a full opportunity for public participation and to allow open discussion of any views and comments the community may have concerning this proposed project.
Plans of the proposed project will be on display for public review. ConnDOT personnel will be available during the meeting to discuss this project. More detailed information is available at the Department’s Office of Engineering, 2800 Berlin Turnpike,
Any persons interested in this project are welcome to attend this meeting.
