CTDOT Announces Initiation of Greater Hartford Mobility Study
The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) is expanding its transportation vision for the Greater Hartford area. Based on extensive public and stakeholder engagement over the past several years, CTDOT will take a holistic look at mobility opportunities for all modes of travel that spans the Connecticut River from Hartford to East Hartford and beyond.
HOW DOES THIS VISION BENEFIT GREATER HARTFORD?

It will identify a comprehensive set of solutions to the mobility needs and recommend a sequence of projects that provide the most benefit for the future of the Hartford area. Doing a more comprehensive study of the Greater Hartford area is the only way to consider the I-84 Hartford Project’s needs together with other efforts, such as but not limited to CTfastrak expansion, railroad corridor enhancements, I-84/I-91 interchange congestion improvements, and other multimodal transportation improvements, including East Coast Greenway and intercity pedestrian and bicycle connectivity.
