Capacity & Operational Improvements on Route 69 in the Vicinity of Route 15 , City of New Haven & Town of Woodbridge
 
 
The  Connecticut  Department  of  Transportation's  (Department)  Office  of  Engineering  is developing plans to improve capacity and operational deficiencies, as well as pedestrian safety and mobility, on Route 69 in the vicinity of Route 15, Interchange 59, in the City of New Haven and the Town of Woodbridge.
 
Work is anticipated to include minor widening on Route 69 in both northbound and southbound directions and Route 15 exit ramps to alleviate delays and queue lengths. In addition, the plans propose  to facilitate  pedestrian  movement with  the  installation  of new  sidewalks, ramps and crosswalks along Route 69, and on Route 69 at Route 63 intersection.
 
The present schedule indicates that the design will be completed in October 2017 , with construction anticipated to start in spring 2018. 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. 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.
