Resurfacing and Safety Improvement Project on Route 2 in the Town of Glastonbury
The Connecticut Department of Transportation is announcing the start of a resurfacing and safety improvement project on Route 2 between exits 8 and 11 in the town of Glastonbury on Tuesday night, October 15, 2013.
The project involves resurfacing and safety improvements of approximately 4.6 miles of Route 2 westbound and eastbound lanes including bridges and on/off ramps in Glastonbury. As part of the resurfacing, the technique of rubblization will be used throughout this area. Rubblization is a means of rehabilitating deteriorated Portland Cement Concrete (PCC) pavement substructure. The concrete is broken into pieces utilizing specialized machinery, and then it is overlaid with Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA).
Also included in this project is the repair and resurfacing of eight bridges within the project limits, placement of edge drains, and metal beam rail will be updated to current standards.
The project limits are from approximately 300 feet east of the Commerce Street Bridge located between Exits 8 and 9, and to approximately 400 feet east of the Wassuc Road Bridge located between exits 10 and 11.
DOT Project No. 0053-0186 was awarded to Tilcon Connecticut Inc. of New Britain, CT on August 26, 2013 at a cost of $21,796,099.41 and is scheduled to be completed in June 2015.
