Phase 5 of Park Road Project in West Hartford Begins

The fifth phase of the Park Road project in West Hartford is set to begin on Monday.

Officials said this phase will be more disruptive and will extend the existing work zone through the Trout Brook Drive intersection.

Park Road will be closed to westbound traffic 24 hours per day between Quaker Lane South and the Interstate 84 ramps. Crews will be regrading and repaving the road.

Trout Brook Drive will be closed to all traffic 24 hours per day between Park Road and Boulevard for two to three weeks. Crews will be adding left turn lanes on Trout Brook Drive near the intersection of Park Road. They will then be regrading and repaving the road.

There will be signed detours in place and local access to homes and businesses will be maintained at all times, officials added.

Drivers are urged to expect delays and to use caution when driving through the area of the project. If possible, drivers are asked to avoid the area and find alternate routes.

South Main Street, Trout Brook Drive and Prospect Avenue and Kane Street are alternate routes that drivers can use.

This road work is part of the two-year project to move the I-84 off-ramp at exit 43 so it is next to the exiting on-ramp. That work is already complete. The total project is projected to wrap up this fall.
