Traffic Safety Improvements and Intersection Realignment for Colt Highway at I-84 Eastbound Entrance Ramp in Farmington

The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) is announcing the weekend closure of the Interstate 84 Eastbound on-ramp from U.S. Route 6 and S.R. 531 (Colt Highway) to facilitate the full depth reconstruction and realignment of the ramp at the intersection of Colt Highway (Route 6 & S.R. 531) with the I-84 Eastbound on-ramp starting October 15, 2022.

The project consists of safety improvements to the Colt Highway in Farmington. Proposed improvements consist of realignment of the westbound lanes of Colt Highway and the entrance ramp to reduce turning movement speeds from the eastbound direction and signal control to improve balance between eastbound left-turning vehicles and eases visibility for westbound vehicles.

The weekend ramp closure will take place starting Saturday, October 15 at 5:00 a.m. and reopening on Monday, October 17 at 5:00 a.m. All work is weather permitting.

Operating Hours: Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
