Project 0103-0274 Webpage

Welcome to the CTDOT webpage for State Project No. 0103-0274, Safety Improvements on Route 82 (Phase 1), in the City of Norwich.

The purpose of the project is to improve safety along the Route 82 corridor between New London Turnpike and Fairmount Street in Norwich in two phases: Project No. 0103-0274 (Phase 1) and Project No. 0103-0275 (Phase 2). The corridor currently experiences a high number of turning and rear-end crashes due to high speeds, lack of turn lanes, and numerous driveway openings. 

There are right-of-way impacts associated with the proposed improvements. Phase 1 will require five total property acquisitions on Route 82. Approximately 52 additional properties will be impacted by either a partial acquisition, a slope easement, and/or temporary construction easements.

Construction is anticipated to begin Spring 2025 with an advanced utility breakout project, followed by proposed roadway work in Spring 2026 based on the availability of funding, acquisition of rights of way, and approval of permit(s).  The estimated construction cost for this project is approximately $30 million. This project is anticipated to be undertaken with 80% federal funds and 20% state funds.
