Public Invited to Informational Meetings for I-95 Stamford Planning and Environment Linkages Study


The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) will host two public meetings for the I-95 Stamford Planning and Environment Linkages (PEL) study on Wednesday, February 21, 2024, from 6:00-7:30 p.m. and Thursday, February 22, 2024, from 12:00-1:30 p.m. The meetings will be held virtually on Zoom.

CTDOT is performing the PEL study, which began in early 2022, to research ways to improve safety and mobility on I-95 between Interchanges 7-9, as well as develop concepts to replace the I-95 bridge over Metro-North Railroad and Myrtle Avenue. The study area includes I-95 from West Avenue (Exit 6) to U.S. Route 106/Seaside Avenue area (Exit 9) and various diversion routes such as U.S. Route 1.

The study is partially funded by a $1 million grant through the Infrastructure Investments and Jobs Act (IIJA)..

The study team is engaging with residents, business owners, and the traveling public about their experiences in the corridor during the public meetings. To attend one of the public meetings and for more information about the study, visit i95stamford.com.
