Transportation Information Meeting - September 14

August 31, 2015

The existing bridge, built in 1958, is a two-span structure consisting of steel floor beams and concrete deck. It is situated between Courtland Avenue and Seaside Avenue and carries 2 lanes of traffic in both the eastbound and westbound directions. The proposed project consists of the replacement of the superstructure with a new shallower steel floor beam and concrete deck superstructure.

I-95

Work is anticipated to begin in fall 2016 and be completed in spring 2018. The estimated construction cost for this project is $17,000,000.

The construction to remove and replace the bridge superstructure will be performed utilizing a weekend roadway closure bypassing I-95 traffic on temporary lanes using the existing and temporary ramps, detouring U.S. Route 1 onto Courtland Avenue and Hamilton Avenue in each direction during each stage. Based on the state highway boundary map, the width of the I-95 right-of-way at the site is large; therefore, no impacts to private property are anticipated.

The Public Information 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 proposed project. The meeting facility is ADA accessible. Language assistance may be requested by contacting the Department of Transportation’s Office of Communications (voice only) at (860) 594-3062 at least five working days prior to the meeting.

Plans will be available for public review. Department personnel will be available during the meeting to discuss this project.
