Installation of Pavement Markings on Various Interstates
 
 
The Connecticut Department of Transportation is announcing that work is to start on Tuesday, May 28, 2013, for the installation of pavement markings.  The first area of work includes Interstate 91 in Meriden. 
 

The project consists of the complete replacement of all existing pavement markings on several interstate routes throughout the state.  The project is one of several projects awarded to multiple contractors for the replacement of pavement markings throughout the state on both interstate and secondary roadways.  Many of the edge/shoulder lines and skip lines being replaced will be recessed into a machined groove to increase visibility during all weather conditions and to extend the service life of the markings. 

 

This project covers the following areas:

Interstate 84 both directions from Southington to Union

Interstate 91 both directions from Meriden to East Windsor

Interstate 291 in Windsor and Manchester

Interstate 691 in Cheshire

 

DOT Project no. 0171-0361 was awarded to Safety Markings Inc. at a cost of $1,974,470.00 on April 19, 2013 and is scheduled to be completed in May 2014

 

 

LANE CLOSURE INFO

The majority of the work will be performed at night and will be a moving operation with intermittent closures of lanes and portions of ramps to complete the work.   Please use caution around this operation as these vehicles will be moving slower than posted speeds and when possible move over to provide them a buffer lane during work activity.
