DOT Road Work Will Cause Delays on Wolcott Street

Bristol Public Works vehicle

The Connecticut Department of Transportation will be replacing storm water structures and pipes on Route 69 — Wolcott Street — between Lawndale Avenue and South Street beginning the week of August 28, 2017.

The work is being performed in preparation of the paving of Wolcott Street in 2018 from the intersection of Route 72 to Peck Lane.

This work will require traffic detours and alternating traffic patterns during construction.

Motorists will be guided around the work area using signing patterns and traffic control personnel.

Residents that reside within the work area will be allowed access at all times and access to the businesses located in this section of roadway will be provided at all times.

The regular work schedule for this project is 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM Monday thru Friday. It is anticipated the project will take 4 weeks to complete.

The roadway will be reopened at the end of each work day and during the weekend during this period of construction. Drivers are advised to expect delays and seek
alternate routes.

Additional notifications will be issued to provide project updates as necessary.

The City apologizes for any inconvenience this project may cause and would like to thank residents for your cooperation.

Please feel free to contact Connecticut Department of Transportation, Kevin Campbell, District Traffic Engineer at 860-258- 4505 with any concerns or questions.
