The Connecticut Department of Transportation is announcing that work will be occurring on limited access highway projects in some areas of the state during the upcoming Columbus Day holiday weekend, which runs from Friday through Monday night (October 9-12, 2009). 

“The window of opportunity to complete work this construction season is closing on us,” said Commissioner Joseph F.
