WEST HARTFORD — Construction on Park Road at the I-84 interchange is nearing completion. The last phase is the final paving of Park Road.
On Wednesday, Sept. 11 (weather dependent), the contractor is scheduled to begin milling portions of Park Road and Trout Brook Drive in preparation for final paving. This work will occur at night from 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. to minimize impacts to the traveling public. The work is expected to last two nights.
The final paving work is scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 15 (weather dependent). This work will also occur at night, between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m., and is expected to last two nights.
In order to complete this work safely and efficiently, road closures will be in place on the following streets: Overbrook Road, Park Road, Raymond Road, Thomson Road, and Trout Brook Drive.
The I-84 on-ramp at Park Road will also be closed at times. The I-84 off-ramp (Exit 43-Park Road) will remain open and traffic will be directed around the work zone.
Motorists are strongly encouraged to avoid the project area and seek alternate routes during the scheduled construction periods.
Upon completion of the final paving, the remaining work includes: pavement markings, guide rails and landscaping. These activities should be completed with only minor traffic impacts and temporary lane closures. The project is expected to be substantially complete later this fall.
