Culvert Rehabilitations in the Towns of Mansfield and Franklin
 
 
The Connecticut Department of Transportation announced today that the Department’s Office of Engineering is developing plans to rehabilitate Culvert No. 06688 conveying Eagleville Brook under SR 430 in the Town of Mansfield and Culvert No. 06777 conveying Beaver Brook under Route 207 in the Town of Franklin.
 

“It is the Department’s policy to keep the public informed and involved when such projects are undertaken,” said Marie.  “It is important that the community share its concerns with us to assist in the project’s development.”  If there is adequate interest, an informational meeting will be conducted.  At this time, it is not anticipated that a formal public hearing will be necessary.

 

The project involves lining the existing culverts with new pipes and repairing the existing concrete headwalls as required.

 

The present schedule indicates that the design will be completed in June 2011, with construction anticipated to start in spring 2012.  Construction activities are anticipated to last approximately three weeks with minimal disruption to traffic.  At this time, it is proposed that the project will be undertaken with 80% federal and 20% state funds.

 

Anyone interested in receiving information on this project may do so by contacting Mr. Scott A. Hill, Manager of State Design, at (860) 594-3272, or by e-mail at scott.hill@ct.gov.  Please make reference to State Project No. 172-394.
