NEWINGTON, CONNECTICUT – Transportation Commissioner Ralph Carpenter announced today, the State Department of Transportation has begun the preliminary design for the rehabilitation of Bridge No. 00649, which carries Interstate 84 westbound over Route 10 in the town of Southington.

 

            “It is the Department’s policy to keep the public informed and involved when such projects are undertaken,” Commissioner Carpenter said.  “It is important that the community share its concerns with the Department to assist in the development of the project.”

 

            A public information meeting will be conducted once preliminary plans have been prepared.  At this time, it is not anticipated that a formal public hearing will be necessary.  Traffic will be maintained during construction.

 

            The project schedule indicates that construction will start in the spring of 2009 assuming acceptance of the project, availability of funding and receipt of any required right-of-way and environmental permits.

 

            Anyone interested in requesting information on this project should contact Mr. Richard Armstrong, Principal Engineer – Consultant Design, Department of Transportation, 2800 Berlin Turnpike, P.O. Box 317546, Newington, Connecticut 06131-7546.  Please refer to State Project No. 131-191 in all correspondence.
