Weekly Update: Week of May 1st, 2016

 

I-91

Northbound I-91 traffic has been relocated onto the southbound bridge. Traffic will remain reduced to one lane in each direction on I-91 until completion of the new bridge. The new bridge will be 104’ wide and is designed to carry all four lanes of traffic – two northbound and two southbound.

Route 30

The speed limit on Route 30 near the work zone has been reduced to 40 mph. Project-related truck activity on Route 30 will continue. Route 30 may be reduced to a single lane intermittently, with flaggers regulating traffic within the work zone.

Upper Dummerston Road

The project will not have any direct effects on Upper Dummerston Road. Upper Dummerston Road will be closed for one day either May 10th or May 11th beginning at 5:00 AM and ending at 9:00 PM so that the project team can work on concrete deck placement. This work is weather dependent. We will give the public as much advance notice as possible regarding the closure date.

West River Trail

The West River Trail is open. There are intersections between construction access and the trail path, and users should exercise extreme caution at these intersections. As an additional safety precaution, users of the West River Trail are reminded to keep pets on a leash in this area.
