Region to see major transportation projects over next four years

The Southeastern Connecticut Council of Governments, which serves as a transportation planning organization for the region, has published the draft document, called the Transportation Improvement Program FY 2024-2028, and is seeking comments from the public. The plan is described as “a four-year program that prioritizes and documents the funding of federally funded transportation improvement projects that the region expects to carry out over the next four years.” Among the projects, Rattan said the plan outlines about $300 million for the Gold Star Bridge rehabilitation in Groton and New London, which will occur in phases; more than $50 million for safety improvements on Route 82 in Norwich; $63.4 million for Route 2 safety and bridge improvements in Colchester, and about $3.5 million toward enhanced transportation for seniors and people with disabilities.
