What is the I-84 Hartford Project?

I-84 through Hartford is the busiest section of highway in the state of Connecticut, carrying more than 175,000 vehicles daily (more than three times its original design capacity!). The majority of this 50-year-old highway was built on elevated structures - viaducts - which are reaching the end of their useful life and must be replaced. The I-84 Hartford Project will assess the needs and condition of the highway between Flatbush Avenue (Exit 45) and the I-91 interchange, develop alternative solutions, and advance a program of improvements throughout the corridor.

The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) previously considered replacing the I-84 viaducts "in-kind." However, after further study, community input and consultation, CTDOT recognizes that there are great opportunities that might be realized with further assessment of this corridor.

The I-84 Hartford Project seeks to examine a variety of options for reconstructing this section of I-84 and/or modifying the design to create a long-term solution which will be embraced by its many stakeholders.
