RT 49 DOT Pavement Rehabilitation Plan


NEWINGTON, CT – The Connecticut Department of Transportation’s (Department) Office of Engineering is developing plans to rehabilitate the pavement on CT Route 49 in the Towns of
Voluntown and Sterling. The project involves rehabilitating the pavement on CT Route 49 between mile markers 13.52 and 21.74.

The purpose of the project is to preserve the pavement condition. The present schedule indicates that the design will be completed in December 2022, with construction anticipated to start in the
spring of 2023, assuming acceptance of the project, availability of funding and receipt of any required right-of-way and environmental permits. This project will be undertaken with 0% federal and 100% state funds.

It is the Department’s policy to keep the public informed and involved when such projects are undertaken. It is important that the community share its concerns with the Department to assist in
the project’s development. A public informational meeting will not be conducted for this project as its scope is considered routine maintenance.
