Pavement Preservation Program Interstate 91 in Hartford and Windsor
 
The purpose of this program is to enhance pavement performance  by  using  cost-effective  treatments  to  extend  the  service  life  of  the  existing pavements.  A section of Interstate 91 in Hartford from the vicinity of the Sam Colt Building to approximately 600 feet south of Interchange 37 in Windsor has been identified as a candidate for this program.  The Department is developing plans for pavement improvements by milling the existing wearing surface of Interstate 91 and its ramps and then overlaying it with new bituminous concrete asphalt.
 
The present schedule indicates that the design will be completed in October 2014, with construction anticipated to start in spring 2015. This project will be undertaken with  80% federal and 20% state funds.
 
It is the Department's policy to keep the public informed and involved when such projects are undertaken. It is important that the community share its concerns with us to assist in the project's development. It is not anticipated that an informational meeting or a formal public hearing will be held for this project due to the limited nature of the proposed work.
 
Anyone  interested  in  receiving  information  on  this  project  may do  so  by  contacting Mr. William W. Britnell, Principal Engineer of Highway Design, at (860) 594-3274, or by e-mail at William.Britnell@ct.gov. Please make reference to State Project Number 0063-0702.
