Proposed Roundabout at the Intersection of Route 110 (Shelton Road) and Route 111 (Monroe Turnpike), in Monroe
 
The Connecticut Department of Transportation (Department) will conduct a public informational meeting regarding the proposed roundabout at the intersection of Route 110 (Shelton Road) and Route 111 (Monroe Turnpike) in Monroe.  The meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 24, 2015, at the Monroe Town Hall, Council Chambers, 7 Fan Hill Road, Monroe, Connecticut.  A formal presentation by Department representatives will begin at 7:00 p.m., immediately followed by a question and answer session.
 

The purpose of this project is to address operation and safety at the intersection of Routes 110 and 111. 

The project will consist of removing the existing flashing beacon and constructing a modern roundabout.  The proposed work will include converting Hurd Avenue to a cul-de-sac, as well as installing sidewalks throughout the project area.  Landscaping and other decorative features will also be included.

The present schedule indicates that the design will be completed in fall 2016, with construction anticipated to begin in spring 2017.  The estimated construction cost for this project is approximately $4.1 million, anticipated to be undertaken with 80% Federal funds and 20% State funds. 

The public informational meeting is being held to offer an opportunity for the community to review and comment on the proposed roundabout.

The meeting facility is ADA accessible.  Deaf and hearing impaired persons wishing to attend this meeting and requiring an interpreter must make arrangements by contacting the Department’s Office of Communications at (860) 594-3062 (voice only) at least five working days prior to the meeting.  Language assistance is provided at no cost to the public, and efforts will be made to respond to request for assistance.

More detailed information is available at the Department’s Office of Engineering, 2800 Berlin Turnpike, Newington, Connecticut, Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., excluding holidays.  Anyone wishing to discuss the project may contact Mr. William W. Britnell, P.E., Transportation Principal Engineer, at (860) 594-3274 or by e-mail at William.Britnell@ct.gov.  Plans are available for review at the Monroe Town Hall, Town Engineer’s Office, or on the Town of Monroe website under Government & Services > Town Hall Departments > Engineering > Projects.  Use drop-down to select “Route 110 and Route 111 Roundabout.”
