Operational Improvements on Route 34 at Derby-Milford Road in Derby
 
 
The Connecticut Department of Transportation's (Department) Office of Engineering is currently developing plans to improve the overall traffic operations at the intersection of Route 34 (New Haven Avenue) at Derby-Milford Road. 
 
The proposed improvements will widen Derby-Milford Road to accommodate a two-lane approach to Route 34 to help reduce congestion.  There will be a minor roadway realignment which will require full width/depth reconstruction for the entire length of the proposed project on Derby-Milford Road.  The intersection on Route 34  at  Derby-Milford Road  will  also be  widened to accommodate a right turn only lane from Route 34 onto Derby-Milford Road to improve safety.
 
The present schedule indicates that the design will be completed in March 2017, with construction anticipated to start in spring 2018. This project will be undertaken with 80% federal funds 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. A public informational meeting will be conducted upon the completion of the preliminary design.  At this time, it is not anticipated that a formal public hearing will be necessary.
 
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 0036-0195.
