The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) is making repairs to base of the bridge over Union Avenue, near Union Avenue's intersection with State Street, Water Street, and North Frontage Road. While CTDOT's work is unrelated to Downtown Crossing, it is directly in the Downtown Crossing project area. As a result of CTDOT's work, the sidewalk at the underpass may at times be temporarily blocked off to pedestrians. This work is scheduled to be completed by Friday, November 8, 2019.
Road signage will alert drivers and pedestrians to work areas and lane closures.
Please pay attention to this signage, slow down, and stay safe!
