Kennedy Road Northbound Rehabilitation - Route 20 at Windsor Locks to I-91

Kennedy Road Northbound Rehabilitation - Route 20 at Windsor Locks to I-91
Expected project duration: September 24th, 2017 - November 30th, 2017

Project Update - September 14, 2017

This project has been awarded to Empire Paving, Inc. and construction is scheduled to begin September 24, 2017.   


The proposed project includes the milling and paving of the northbound lanes of Kennedy Road beginning in the vicinity of the Windsor Locks town line at Route 20 and extending to the Interstate I-91 on-ramp.  Curbing and catch basin tops will also be replaced.


All work is proposed within the Town’s right-of-way.  Work should not occur between the hours of 6:30 AM and 8:30 AM and between 3:30 PM and 6:00 PM Monday through Friday.    The majority of work will be during nighttime hours with some daytime activity.  During construction hours, the contractor must maintain 2-way traffic on Kennedy Road at all times and access to all drives will be maintained; however, there may be minor delays and inconveniences during the reconstruction.  Traffic may also be shifted to provide 2-way traffic on the southbound side of Kennedy Road to allow the contractor to work more safely and effectively.


Work beginning the week of September 24th will begin with site preparation including some curb removal and the replacement of catch basin tops.  Milling is anticipated to begin early October with paving following shortly thereafter.  We appreciate your cooperation during this project.

Project Summary

In 2016, the town was awarded grant funding through the Connecticut Department of Transportation’s (CT DOT) Local Transportation Capital Improvement Program (LOTCIP) for the pavement rehabilitation of the northbound lanes of Kennedy Road, between Interstate I-91 and Route 20 at the Windsor locks town line.  The LOTCIP Program provides 100% state funding for the construction phase of the project. Work will include the replacement of catch basin tops, milling of existing pavement, new paving, new curbing, line striping, and the replacement of faded signage in the area.  This project complements the similar improvements (also completed using LOTCIP funds) completed in Fall 2014 to the southbound lanes of Kennedy Road in this area.
