Posted on October 25, 2018 by Greg MacKinnon


NEWTOWN – State Representative Mitch Bolinsky (R-106), has issued the following update on Connecticut Department of Transportation and state contractor road projects in progress:

“With the help of DOT and its contractors, we’ve assembled the following updated project information for your knowledge. I am pleased to report real progress on each and a couple nearing completion. Of course, the nature of infrastructure improvement is a never ending process and a couple of our larger projects are long-term and still on the horizon. In the end, I hope we all agree that temporary inconveniences resulting in noticeable improvements in traffic flow, capacity, reliability of adjacent utilities and, most importantly, our safety, are positive steps to help us navigate these areas in our cars, bicycles or on foot.”

For those with comments or further questions about the status of each of the infrastructure projects listed below, or any other inquiries relating to our state government, Rep. Bolinsky can always be contacted by e-mailing or by calling (860) 240-8700.
