Road construction in Mystic, NS ongoing


MYSTIC — Now that summer’s gone and tourism is slowing with the approaching offseason, local and state road construction is in full gear.

On Greenmanville Avenue in Mystic (Route 27), the state project consists of milling and resurfacing the roadway. The paving segment of the work is anticipated to be performed Oct. 15-24.

The schedule for milling and paving other roads in the Mystic area is subject to change based on weather and contractor availability, but is expected to be as follows: All milling should be finished on town roads by Thursday, Oct. 17. Paving should occur on Oct. 21-25, with work on Cottrell, Holmes, Jackson, Willow, Bay and School streets.

Work on the Interstate 95 bridge over Route 2 in North Stonington is ongoing. The work schedule for the project is Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. The project consists of concrete repairs to various bridges located on I-95 North and Southbound in North Stonington.

According to Anthony O. Kwentoh, a transportation supervising engineer with the Connecticut Department of Transportation, the work consisted of beam-end painting that required utility relocations to perform the work. It was initially scheduled to end in September 2013 but is now anticipated to conclude on Oct. 18.

Motorists can expect limited lane closures to occur on I-95 North and Southbound between Exit 91 (Route 234) and the Rhode Island state line, as well as a periodic loss of lane on Route 2.
