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.

At this time, it is anticipated that an informational meeting or formal public hearing will not be necessary.   

The Design Plans for this project are expected to be completed in February 2023, with a tentative advertising date for construction of April, 2023

Anyone interested in requesting information on this project may do so by contacting Ethan Donecker, Project Manager via email at Ethan.Donecker@ct.gov.  (Please make reference to Project No. 0173-0521. )
