Gov. Malloy: State Resurfaced 261 Two-Lane Miles of Roadways in 2018

(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Dannel P. Malloy and Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) Commissioner James P. Redeker today announced that state resurfaced a total of 261 two-lane miles of roadways in 2018. CTDOT also completed 38 two-lane miles as part of the pavement preservation program, which includes crack-filling, surface patching, drainage repairs, and other rehabilitation work prior to resurfacing to extend the life of existing roadways.

CTDOT is responsible for the maintenance of more than 4,100 miles of roadways and highways throughout Connecticut.

“We are committed to continuous improvement on Connecticut highways as we work toward the best possible transportation system for residents, truckers, and visitors,” Governor Malloy said. “I commend the hundreds of men and women who work all year to keep our roads safe and up to today’s standards.”

“As we enter another snow and ice season, I am proud of the work we have done in 2018 to keep Connecticut roads and highways in a state of good repair,” Commissioner Redeker said. “Jobs and economic growth depend on a safe and reliable transportation network – and that requires consistent, sustained investment.”

In total, CTDOT spent $69 million on road resurfacing this year, which was included in the agency’s budget.
