MONROE, Conn. -- The Connecticut Department of Transportation will hold a public information meeting about a proposed rehabilitation of the Route 34 bridge over Boys Half Way Brook.

The meeting will take place on Tuesday at 7 p.m. in Monroe Town Hall, 7 Fan Hill Road.

The meeting will allow open discussion of all views and comments from the community on the proposed project.

The project would consist of replacing the bridge's existing concrete slab with a new reinforced concrete slab.

The slab replacement would be performed using signal-controlled alternating one-way traffic operations. The project would take six weeks to complete.

Additional construction activities would be performed using off-peak lane closures before and after the construction period.

The roadway's width would ultimately be increased to 34 feet, which would accommodate a 12-foot travel lane and a 5-foot shoulder in each direction.

Construction would begin in spring 2018, based on the availability of funding, DOT said.

Plans for the project are available for review at Town Hall.

For more information, contact Louis D. Bacho, Bureau of Engineering and Construction, by phone at 860-594-3212, or by email at Louis.bacho@ct.gov.
