The Connecticut Department of Transportation
(Department) will conduct a Public Informational Meeting to present the findings
of Proposed Project No. 012-003, a concept to construct potential improvements
in the Town of Bolton including the realignment of Notch Road and Route 6 and
the construction of a shared-use path from the Hop River Trail to Quarry
Road. The meeting is scheduled for
Wednesday, December 6, 2017 (snow date of Tuesday, December 12, 2017) at the
Bolton Town Hall, 222 Bolton Center Road, Bolton, Connecticut. The presentation will begin at 7:00 p.m.
The study is identified as Proposed Project No.
The primary purpose of the meeting is to
inform the public about these proposed improvements and solicit feedback. In the vicinity of the Route 6/44
interchange, Route 6 diverges from Route 44 with a compound curve, continuing
to the southeast. This proposed project
will replaced the compound curve with a simple curve to increase safety and
drivability for roadway users. Additionally, the relocation of Notch Road is
proposed to increase sight distance and decrease crossing length for vehicles
turning onto Route 44 from the local roadway. It is proposed that Notch Road be
relocated further to the west and Bridge No. 04137 be removed. Re-grading and
rock excavation of the surrounding area will likely be included in the work.
Finally, the construction of a shared-use path on the northern side of Route
6/44 was previously presented to the public as Project No. 12-98. This meeting
will provide an update on the modifications that have been made since it was
last presented and solicit feedback on the final proposed alignment.
The Public Informational Meeting is being
held to afford a full opportunity for public participation and to allow open
discussion of any views and comments the community may have concerning this feasibility
