The project is identified as State Project No. 0053-0190. The purpose of the project is to provide non-motorized access across the Connecticut River. This project proposes a new shared use path along Route 3 providing essential connections from the walkway on Putnam Bridge to Great Meadow Road in Wethersfield and to Naubuc Avenue in Glastonbury. It is also proposed to install sidewalks on both sides of Naubuc Avenue. There are right-of-way impacts associated with the proposed improvements for the installation of sidewalk along Naubuc Avenue in the Town of Glastonbury.
Construction is anticipated to begin in spring 2021 based on the availability of funding. The estimated construction cost for this project is approximately $10.5 million. This project is anticipated to be undertaken with State funds.
