Senator Lesser Announces Nighttime Road Construction In Cromwell Beginning Sunday

State Senator Matt Lesser (D-Middletown) announced today that the Department of Transportation will conduct a nighttime milling and resurfacing project on I-91 northbound and southbound in Cromwell beginning Sunday, April 26. Detours will be required.

“This important work will ensure our roadways are in peak condition,” said Sen. Lesser. “This is not only beneficial for our local community but for travelers statewide using I-91.”

The project will consist of milling and resurfacing a 0.66-mile segment of I-91 northbound and southbound in Cromwell. Milling will begin on Sunday, April 26 and continue to Tuesday, May 5. Resurfacing will follow on Wednesday, May 6, continuing to Friday, May 22.

Motorists can expect I-91 northbound and southbound lane closures and short-term on-and-off ramp detours at Exit 21, with changes occurring from the Middletown town line to the North Road Overpass. Traffic control personnel, including state police and signing patterns, will guide motorists through the work zone and detours, with regular work expected from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. overnight Sunday through Thursday.

Detours will occur northbound along I-91 to Exit 22S, south onto Route 9 to Exit 19, then back on the interchange. Motorists on Route 372 driving north will be directed west along Route 372 to Route 9 north to I-91 north. Detours will occur southbound to Exist 23, onto Middle Street, Smith Street and Industrial Park Road back to the interchange, with Route 372 motorists destined south driving those roads in reverse order to reach I-91 south.
