DOT Champing at Bit to Close Flower

By , October 14, 2012 6:26 pm

Until the hearing officer hands down her decision regarding what the Department of Transportation can do with Flower Street, it should remain open, yet a “road closed” and “stop” sign have appeared on either side of the train tracks on this roadway.

Nothing in the CTfastrak weekly newsletter indicates even temporary closures of Flower Street for the week through October 19, 2012.

UPDATE: The DOT finally responds. See comments for its perspective.

    The resaon why there was nothing in the CTfastrak newsletter is that it had nothing to do with the project. Perhaps it had to do with the myriad of road closures for the Hartford Marathon on Saturday.

    As of last night, October 15, there was a fairly large sign on northbound Broad Street just past the entrance to the State Armory that reads “Road Closed To Thru Traffic”. I noticed it as I drove from Capitol Ave to Garden Street and was happy to find that it wasn’t (yet) closed to thru traffic. Anyone have any idea if there is a plan to force northbound traffic onto I-84 and not allow people to access Farmington Avenue?

  3. The mysterious stop signs on Flower have been removed. It was noted by a resident that the signs that appeared over the weekend were shiny and new-looking and were placed close to the tracks, not at the ends of the street. It was also noted that the signs were not in place during the marathon. Random signage?
