Brace for More Congestion on Flatbush

Starting on the evening of March 15th, the stretch of Flatbush from New Park Avenue to the highway ramps will be “reduced to one lane”, eastbound. Newfield Avenue, northbound, between Shopping Plaza Drive and Flatbush, will also be “reduced to one lane,” according to the Connecticut Department of Transportation.

Despite ongoing construction in this area, CTfastrak is describing this as the beginning of stage one for the Flatbush Avenue reconstruction project. There are four stages. There is no indication of when this stage will be completed.

The CTfastrak is seeking input via a survey, with questions about service options and room to comment on other aspects of the New Britain-to-Hartford busway.
