The Connecticut Department of Transportation (Department) will conduct a Public Informational Meeting concerning proposed safety improvements on Route 133 (Main Street South) on Tuesday, April 17, 2012, at the Burnham School gymnasium, 80 Main Street South, Bridgewater, Connecticut. A design presentation will be made at 7:00 p.m. with a question and answer period immediately following.
The project is identified as State Project Number 16-98.
The proposed project includes upgrade of the guiderail along Route 133 from the Lake Lillinonah Bridge to Wewaka Brook Road for a length of approximately one mile. In addition, approximately 3,000 feet of the roadway will be reconstructed to allow for proper guiderail installation. During construction, Route 133 is to be closed to traffic for an anticipated duration of five months. State routes are planned to be used for the detour of traffic.
Construction is anticipated during the Spring/Summer of 2015, based on the availability of funding. The estimated construction cost for this project is approximately $10 million.
