Public Information Meeting - Safety Improvements on I-95January 5, 2021
The purpose of the project is to rehabilitate the pavement, address roadside safety and perform bridge rehabilitation to extend the service life of the facility. The secondary purpose of this project is to provide operational and safety benefits and alleviate congestion in the southbound direction at Exit 3. This project begins at the New York/Connecticut state border on I-95 and extends approximately 6.63 miles to Exit 6.
The project proposes to rehabilitate the bituminous pavement and the underlying concrete pavement and also includes minor bridge rehabilitation, storm drainage improvements and upgrades to guiderail and concrete barrier. The deceleration lane at Exit 3 in the southbound direction will be widened and extended to provide operational improvements. Right-of-way impacts are not anticipated.
Construction is anticipated to begin in the fall of 2022 based on the availability of funding, acquisition of rights of way and approval of permit(s). This project is anticipated to be undertaken with 90-percent federal funds and 10-percent state funds.
