Project Name, Contract Number: Contract E, State Project No. 92-531/622/627
Project Area: I-91/I-95/Rt. 34 Interchange
Project Scope: Contract E, located in New Haven, consists of the reconstruction of the I-95/I-91/Route 34 Interchange to accommodate lanes from the new Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge and improve interstate-to-interstate travel. The project extends 1,600 meters (1 mile) along I-95, from the western project limit at Interchange 46 (Sargent/Long Wharf Drive) to the eastern project limit at approximately East Street, and 1100 meters (3500 feet) along I-91, between Ivy Place and Route 34. The reconstruction will provide three travel lanes on I-95 through the Interchange. Reconstruction will include the elimination of left lane exit and entrance ramps and provide a two-lane connection to I-91. Twenty one bridges will be replaced, including I-91 over Chapel Street, I-91 over Wooster Street on-ramp to I-95 northbound, multiple crossings over Water Street, Route 34 westbound over Brewery Street, and I-95 over Canal Dock Road. Sargent Drive, from Canal Dock Road to Brewery Street, will be realigned. Looping ramps adjacent to Sargent Drive/Brewery Street will be removed. Water Street, from East Street to Brewery Street, will be widened to two lanes in each direction. The Wooster Street on-ramp to I-95 North will be retained. Full shoulders, a new median barrier, drainage, signing, and lighting will be provided throughout the project.
