Shelton street extension project heads to CT Bond Commission

The groundbreaking on extending Constitution Boulevard is planned for April 15, and it appears construction will be on the state’s dime. A request for $5 million to cover the costs of extending the roadway — which is essential to the eventual development of the nearly 70-acre, city-owned Mas property — will be before the state Bond Commission on March 31. Extending the roadway and use of the Mas property has been on the table for years, but Lauretti began the most recent push in April when he presented preliminary plans for creating the road leading into the city-owned land, which would be developed into a manufacturing corporate park. Lauretti has so far declined to say what the city is offering but said the owners of 55 Blacks Hill Road have offered to sell the 5.1-acre property to the city for $1.7 million.
