    Hamilton Street in Hartford will be closed due to railroad tracks construction July 14 to 18. 

    The Connecticut Department of Transportation (DOT) announced that the road will be closed between Francis Avenue and Bartholomew Avenue for five days, starting on Monday, July 14 at 7 a.m.

    The project, which is tied to the state's construction of CTfastrak, involves replacing Amtrak railroad tracks that cross the street.

    CTfastrak is a "new bus rapid transit system" that will span 9.4 miles and connect Hartford to New Britain on a traffic-free route that bypasses Interstate 84. More information is available on the CTfastrak website
