Realignment of Todd and Pine Street Intersection in Bristol
The Department of Transportation is announcing that the intersection of Pine and Todd Streets in Bristol is scheduled to be shifted into its new alignment on April 23, 2010.
This shift will realign Todd Street, Pine Street and the relocated section of Route 72 into a conventional four way intersection, thereby eliminating the original ‘Y’ type intersection at Todd and Pine Street. The realignment includes a new traffic signal at the intersection and will improve sight lines and safety for motorists.
This road construction work is part of the ongoing Route 72 Relocation project in Bristol and Plainville. This $40 million project is being performed by Manafort Brothers, Inc. of Plainville, Connecticut under contract with the Department of Transportation. The anticipated completion date for this project is in November 2010.
