Installation of Pavement Markings on Various Interstates
 
The project will begin on Sunday, September 7, 2014 on I-95 in East Lyme.  The work 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.
 
The project covers the following areas:
 
-  Route I-95 in East Lyme both directions

-  Route I-395 in the towns of  East Lyme, Waterford, Montville, Norwich, Lisbon, and Griswold

 

DOT Project No. 0172-0425 was awarded to Safety Markings Inc., at a cost of $249,535.00 on July 07, 2014 and is scheduled to be completed in November 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 the posted speeds and when possible move over to provide them a buffer lane during work activity.
