How bad will traffic be when the I-84 viaduct in Hartford is replaced? Think Waterbury, the state Department of Transportation says

A replacement of the aging I-84 viaduct in Hartford is still at least a decade away, but state transportation planners now say they are confident the $5 billion project is possible without shutting down the highway to traffic passing through the city. “It’s a lot like Waterbury where we did offline work, we kept the traffic moving, then we did some widening or built a temporary road and traffic shifted over there and then you went and built in the other area,” Andy Fesenmeyer, a state Department of Transportation project manager, said. “It’s that same theory, we never shut any lanes down in Waterbury.”
