Connecticut’s major development and construction projects underway

Bradley International Airport competed its $210 million ground transportation center in July and already has its sights set on other projects. In July, the airport received a $20 million federal grant that will go toward a larger $185 million redevelopment of Bradley’s facilities. That project is expected to take about two years, officials said in July. The Charter Oak Bridge Project combines two initiatives that officials say will help reduce congestion and improve safety on Interstate-91 in Hartford County. The project – which cost about $240 million – has mostly wrapped up. The work included relocating an exit ramp on I-91 to provide an extra lane and ease safety concerns from merging traffic. The largest resort casino in the Northeast is adding more space for its 30th anniversary. In November, Foxwoods Casino will open its 80,000-square-foot Rainmaker Expo Center for trade shows and sporting events. The casino will also begin construction for a $85-million project that will add 50,000 feet of gaming space and a 13,000-square-foot restaurant to the Ledyard resort.
