Senator Needleman Announces Road Work Impacting Travel in Colchester

COLCHESTER, CT – State Senator Norm Needleman (D-Colchester) announced today that the Department of Transportation will start an asphalt rubber chip seal project on Colchester’s Route 149 on Aug. 12.

This project involves placing an asphalt rubber chip seal over existing pavement from curb to curb. Crews will also perform crack sealing and surface patching to repair existing roadways prior to that seal. Sections of Route 149 will be milled and paved prior to the chip sealing; centerline rumble strips will also be installed in portions of the road.

Motorists can expect lane closures on Route 149 from Peck Lane to the end of Route 149. Traffic impacts may occur between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. from Monday to Friday and from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. from Monday to Friday, with crews controlling traffic and installing signing patterns through the work zone. Motorists are advised to drive safely in the region.

This project is scheduled to be completed by July 26, 2020.
