Main Street, East Hartford New Traffic Pattern

Posted on January 18, 2021

A new traffic pattern will soon be put into effect on Main Street in East Hartford, maintaining two lanes of traffic in each direction, to allow for continued construction to widen the Main Street Bridge.  There will be temporary shoring towers and crane mats, protected by temporary concrete barrier, on the east and west sides of Main Street, as well as in the median.

The sidewalk on the eastern side under the bridge will be closed, and a pedestrian detour route will be clearly marked to direct pedestrians to the western side of the road. This new traffic pattern is anticipated to be in effect until Thanksgiving time, 2021.

The start date for this new pattern will be posted, once scheduled.
