Shelton receives $1.6M state grant for Constitution Blvd. West extension

The state is again paving the way to further the Constitution Boulevard West extension. The State Bond Commission, at its meeting Friday, approved $1.6 million to support what will be Phase Two of the road’s extension. The city received $5 million from the state in 2022 to complete Phase One of the project, which is already underway. That calls for the connection from Bridgeport Avenue to the Mas property. Phase Two is the roadway work through the Mas property. Construction of Phase One of the Constitution Boulevard West extension was expected to begin again in earnest this spring but remains delayed, according to Lauretti, as the city awaits permitting from the state Department of Transportation. Mike Kanios, the city’s public works director, has stated the goal is to have Phase One done by the fall, but added that some Phase Two work will likely be done during this time, too. Kanios has stated he expects the entire project to be completed by spring of 2025.
