HARTFORD – Governor Dannel P. Malloy announced on Thursday that the Connecticut Department of Transportation will soon prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for the I-84 Hartford Viaduct Project – the next step in the process to replace the 50-year-old elevated structure through downtown Hartford.

“The project to redesign and reconstruct I-84 in Hartford is critical to address this aging and obsolete section of interstate in our capital city – steps that should have been completed many years ago and are finally being addressed,” Malloy said in a statement. “I-84 is critical for local and regional commuters and truckers – our economic vitality in the region depends on it. We want Connecticut residents to have a best-in-class infrastructure that attracts growth and improves the quality of life for all who live here. By making these much-needed and long overdue investments to the I-84 viaduct, we will finally make the bold steps toward an efficient, upgraded, and renewed infrastructure that advances progress, mitigates congestion, and creates jobs.”
