The Connecticut Department of Transportation (DOT) is developing plans to replace existing traffic control signal equipment with new equipment to meet current standards at 12 locations in Ellington, Manchester, New Britain, South Windsor, Vernon, and Windsor. At applicable locations, pedestrian control features (countdown pedestrian indications, accessible pushbuttons, sidewalk ramps) will be upgraded in an effort to improve accessibility and pedestrian safety. The Department will coordinate with the respective city/town during the design phase.
The following intersections are included:
· Manchester – Route 30 (Deming St.) at I-84 Westbound Ramps and Avery St. – Intersection No. 076-252
· Manchester – Route 30 (Deming St. and Tolland Tpke.) at Tolland Tpke. – Intersection No. 076-253

It is the DOT’s policy to keep the public informed and involved when such projects are undertaken. It is important that the community share its concerns with us to assist in the project’s development. At this time, it is anticipated that an informational meeting or formal public hearing will not be necessary.
The design plans for this project are expected to be completed in June 2022 with a tentative advertising date for construction of August 2022.
