Pavement Preservation Design Phase Beginning for Projects in the Towns of Canaan, Killingly, New Britain, Farmington, Manchester, Mansfield, Simsbury, Southbury, Woodbury, Wethersfield, Hartford, Windsor Locks and East Windsor
 
 
The Connecticut Department of Transportationís Office of Engineering is developing pavement preservation plans for various sections of roadway (projects detailed below). The purpose of these projects is to extend the service life of the existing pavement. It is the Departmentís policy to keep the public informed and involved when such projects are undertaken.  It is important that communities share any concerns with us to assist in the development of the projects.  It is not anticipated that informational meetings or a formal public hearings will be held for these projects due to the limited nature of the proposed work.
 
Anyone interested in receiving information on these projects 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 reference the project number in any correspondence.
