  • Traffic-Lane Shifts Planned For I-84 Overpasses Above Center St.

    The state Department of Transportation (DOT) will be shifting the lanes of traffic flow on the two Interstate-84 bridges which cross above Center Street in the Riverside section of Sandy Hook.

    The construction work required to shift the location of traffic flow on the two 100-foot-long bridges is scheduled to start on Sunday, June 2, and continue to Friday, June 21. The parallel bridges lie about 90 feet apart from one another.

  • I-84 Bridge Reconstruction Plans Delayed

    State plans to shift the travel lanes on two Interstate-84 bridges, which cross above Center Street in the Riverside section of Sandy Hook, in preparation for a two-year dual bridge reconstruction project have been delayed for technical reasons, according to a state Department of Transportation (DOT) spokesman.

    DOT spokesman Kevin Nursick said this week that state officials are reviewing an issue concerning eastbound I-84’s existing bridge pavement geometry that must be resolved before a lane shift could be created on that bridge.
