Downtown Crossing construction for this two-week period will occur on weekdays between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Road Construction
Various single lane closures will occur on the following roads to accommodate construction:

  • South Frontage Road between South Orange Street and College Street
  • Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard between South Orange Street and Church Street
  • North Service Drive at Orange Street
  • South Service Drive at Orange Street

Pedestrian Detour
A pedestrian detour will be put into place to accommodate construction on South Frontage Road near Church Street. The detour will go into effect on Tuesday, August 13, 2019 and will last for approximately one year. Signage will direct pedestrians around the detour. A map of the pedestrian detour is included below.

Tree Removal
Tree removal will occur on South Orange Street in the vicinity of South Frontage Road, West Water Street, and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. In areas that permit on-street parking, tree removal work may temporarily limit on-street parking.

Road signage will alert drivers and pedestrians to work areas and lane closures.
Please pay attention to this signage, slow down, and stay safe!

Other Construction
The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) will begin nighttime construction on a project unrelated to Downtown Crossing. While unrelated, CTDOT's work will occur in the vicinity of Downtown Crossing construction and will result in nighttime lane closures on North Frontage Road.

The project consists of milling, bridge deck repairs and resurfacing of the Route 34 bridge over US 1 (Columbus Plaza) and CSX Railroad in New Haven. This project is scheduled to occur the evening of Friday, August 9, 2019 to the morning of Friday, September 13, 2019.
