The Town of West Hartford has completed the first two rounds of repaving work, and has announced the roadways which will be addressed during the third and final round of the season.
Repaving includes milling but not complete reconstruction.
According to Town Engineer Duane Martin, the following roadways will be repaved during the final round, set to begin in mid-September and be completed by early October:
- Hilldale Road
- Fuller Drive
- Parsons Drive
- Asylum Avenue (Steele Road to Prospect Avenue)
- Sycamore Road
- Sycamore Lane
- Quaker Lane South (Talcott Road to New Britain Avenue)
In addition, work continues on the Park Road/I-84 Interchange, and a partial closure/detour has been in place since mid-August.
One lane of traffic is able to travel in each direction between Raymond Road and the I-84 interchange, however, detours are in place for access to I-84.
Traffic heading eastbound on Park Road can access I-84 East or I–84 West from Park Road (Exit 43). Traffic that normally accesses I-84 from a westbound direction on Park Road, however, is being detoured. (See PDF below)
Recommended alternatives include South Main Street (Exit 41) for vehicles that need to access I-84 in a westbound direction. I-84 East can be accessed at Exit 42, Trout Brook Drive. Exit 42 does not have access to I-84 West.
Town officials urge motorists to follow the detour and not attempt a U-turn on Park Road and avoid turnung around on side streets.” These maneuvers are dangerous, disrupt traffic flow, and are discourteous to the neighboring residents,” the town website states.
Town staff said that motorists should expect delays, and completely avoiding the project area is recommended if possible.
