Pavement Preservation (Crack Sealing) in Various Towns
The Connecticut Department of Transportation’s Office of Engineering is developing plans to perform crack sealing of the travel lanes on the following sections of roadway:
Route 6 – East from the Coventry Town Line (Log Mile 79.79) to 0.054 miles beyond Bunker Hill Road (Log Mile 83.024), approximately 3.234 miles

Routes 6 & 44 – East from the Manchester Town Line (Log Mile 75.55) to 0.213 miles beyond Williams Road (Log Mile 76.283), approximately 0.743 miles

Route 190 – East from the Suffield Town Line (Log Mile 2.983) to 0.202 miles beyond the Palomba Drive/Middle Road intersection (Log Mile 4.682), approximately 1.699 miles
Route 10 – North from the Plainville Town Line (Log Mile 31.19) to the Route 4 intersection (Log Mile 33.85), approximately 2.66 miles
Route 17 – North from the Portland Town Line (Log Mile 30.581) to the Route 2 interchange (Log Mile 36.244), approximately 5.663 miles
Route 85 – North from the Route 66 intersection (Log Mile 25.543) to the Route 44 intersection (Log Mile 30.239), approximately 4.696 miles
Routes 6 & 44 – east from Vernon Street (Log Mile 74.178) to the Bolton Town Line (Log Mile 75.55), approximately 1.372 miles

Please note that this project is dependent on contract prices at the time of bid opening. As a result, there may not be sufficient funding to perform the pavement preservation at each location.
At this time, it is not anticipated that a public informational meeting or a formal public hearing will be necessary due to the limited scope of work. The work is maintenance oriented, with a purpose of extending the service life of the roadway pavement.
Construction is anticipated to start in the spring of 2011. Work on each section of roadway, as listed, is anticipated to last one to two weeks. This project will be undertaken with Federal “American Recovery and Reinvestment Act” 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
