DOT plans hearing on new I-95 ramps in Stratford

From the Connecticut Post.

The state Department of Transportation will hold a public hearing on the planned Exit 33 ramp project on I-95. The hearing will be held at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, June 16 at the Baldwin Center, 1000 West Broad St.

Construction is anticipated to begin in 2017 “based on the availability of funding.” DOT says. The estimated construction cost is approximately $22 million.

The DOT said in a release announcing the meeting, “the purpose of the project is to enhance access to I-95 and local roadways by providing a full interchange at Exit 33 on I-95 in Stratford. Currently, Exit 33 is a partial interchange consisting of a northbound off-ramp and a southbound on-ramp. It is proposed to construct a new northbound on-ramp and a new southbound off-ramp at this location. The new northbound on-ramp would begin at the Ferry Boulevard/U.S. Route 1 intersection on the south side of I-95 and the new southbound off-ramp would connect with Veterans Boulevard on the north side of I-95.”
