I-84 Hartford viaduct project moving forward

News

HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — A major step to begin replacing a portion of I-84 in Hartford was announced Thursday.

Governor Dannel Malloy says the Department of Transportation will soon start the preparation for an Environmental Impact Statement. The EIS will evaluate the environmental effects of the project to assure resulting decisions are made in the best overall public interest, according to the Malloy administration.

“We want Connecticut residents to have a best-in-class infrastructure that attracts growth and improves the quality of life for all who live here,” Malloy said Thursday. “By making these much needed and long overdue investments to the I-84 viaduct, we will finally make the bold steps toward an efficient, upgraded, and renewed infrastructure that advances progress, mitigates congestion, and creates jobs.”

The idea of the I-84 Hartford project is to improve the traffic operation of the highway through the city, as well as improving the safety and mobility on the I-84 mainline and its interchanges between Flatbush Avenue and I-91 in Hartford.
