Route 66 at Portland Ledges Area Safety Improvements (Concept F)

Type:

Small

Complexity:

Moderate

Priority:

Mid term

Cost:

This project requires additional investigation and engineering analysis to determine project scope and associated costs.

Goals:

Improve safety at Portland Ledges area along Route 66 by eliminating existing sightline restrictions caused by reverse horizontal curves and insufficient clear zone due to the proximity of the steep rock cut slopes, primarily along the north side of Route 66

Elements:
  • Remove rock ledge and vegetation along both sides of Route 66 to improve roadside safety via expanded available clear zone and increased horizontal sight distance
Permits:
  • CTDOT approval and/or encroachment permit for construction within CTDOT right-of-way
