The Connecticut Department of Transportation (DOT) is hosting a public information meeting to discuss proposed safety and traffic operational improvements on the I-95 Interchange 74 at Route 161 and replacement of the I-95 bridge over Route 161.
If postponement of the public informational/public scoping meeting is required due to inclement weather or other conditions, the meeting will be held on Thursday, May 30, 2019 at the original hour and location.\
Proposed improvements include:
Construction would cost $140 million – funded 80 percent by federal dollars and 20 percent by state dollars – and begin in Summer 2021. Right-of-way impacts associated with the proposed improvements include total and partial property acquisitions, permanent easements, and temporary easements during construction.
Project proposals will be on display during the meeting, but you can also acquire more information from the DOT’s Office of Engineering located at 2800 Berlin Turnpike in Newington.
I encourage you to attend the meeting, ask questions and share your opinions on this proposal. If you are unable to attend but would still like to discuss the project, please contact Susan Libatique from the Bureau of Engineering and Construction at 860-594-3179 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
