Connecticut resurfaced 261 two-lane miles of roadway in 2018
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut has resurfaced 261 two-lane miles of roadways over the past year.
In an annual tally, released Wednesday, Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and Department of Transportation Commissioner James Redeker say the agency also completed work on 38 two-lane miles as part of the state’s pavement preservation program. Those efforts include crack-filling, surface patching, drainage repairs and other rehabilitation work that’s needed prior to resurfacing. Such fixes are needed to extend the life of existing roads.
The work cost $69 million.
Connecticut’s transportation department is responsible for maintaining more than 4,100 miles of roads and highways throughout the state.
The agency resurfaced 260 miles in 2017; 302 in 2016; 330 in 2015; and 305 in 2014.
