CTDOT Announces Initiation of Greater Hartford Mobility Study

The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) is expanding its transportation vision for the Greater Hartford area. Based on extensive public and stakeholder engagement over the past several years, CTDOT will take a holistic look at mobility opportunities for all modes of travel that spans the Connecticut River from Hartford to East Hartford and beyond.

This Greater Hartford Mobility Study will build upon the extensive planning and engineering work performed to date on multiple initiatives in the region. Several initiatives will now be incorporated into this study, including the I-84 Hartford Project. Other considerations include CTfastrak expansion, railroad corridor enhancements, the I-84 / I-91 interchange, and other multimodal transportation improvements such as the East Coast Greenway and intercity pedestrian and bicycle connectivity.

The I-84 Hartford Project was established to address the condition of the two miles of aging bridges between the Flatbush Avenue ramps and the I-91 interchange; however, other transportation needs beyond these geographic limits have become apparent through additional study and public involvement. Furthermore, these needs are interrelated and must be evaluated comprehensively to properly address them from a technical and regulatory perspective. Thus, CTDOT will take a broader look at all these connected challenges and establish priorities for their design and construction into the future.
