Traffic Shift on Route 34 and I-84 Exit 11 On Ramp in the Town of Newtown
NEWTOWN- State Rep. Mitch Bolinsky (R-106) is reminding residents that the project to improve the intersection around the area of Route 34, Berkshire Rd. and Wasserman Way (SR 490) in Newtown is ongoing and traffic is being shifted onto a new temporary I-84 Exit 11 on-ramp.
The new temporary on-ramp’s location is next to the existing one which is being closed to allow for permanent reconstruction. Traffic will be shifted to the southern curb line to allow for work to be done on two retaining walls on the northern side of Route 34.
DOT is estimating total project completion by May 3, 2024.
LANE CLOSURE INFO
All lanes are open but will be shifted on Route 34 at Wasserman Way. Traffic entering I-84 at Exit 11 will use a new temporary ramp adjacent to the old one.
