About the Study

The Capitol Region Council of Governments (CRCOG), the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT), the Town of Farmington, and City of Hartford are conducting a study to address transportation needs and deficiencies in the areas surrounding UConn Health Center and the Greater Hartford University of Connecticut (UConn) campus. Recent investments by the State, Private Sector, and UConn in the areas surrounding the UConn Health Center in Farmington establish the need to study the surrounding transportation networks to support this growth in a sustainable manner.  Although Farmington’s Health Center Campus will be the main focal point of the study, a breakout task will also study multi-modal, “last mile” issues associated with UConn’s proposed Greater Hartford Campus in downtown Hartford.

In Farmington, the study area includes Route 4 and the roadways surrounding UConn Health Farmington in the eastern portion of Farmington including Interstate Ramps, State Highways and local roads. In Hartford, the Study Area will include the area in between I-91, I-84/Route 6, Trumbull Street, and the Whitehead Highway. In Farmington, the study area roadways limits include:

  • Route 4 (Farmington Avenue) from the intersection with Route 508 (Farmington Avenue Connector) to the West Hartford town line
  • Colt Highway from the intersection with SR 549 (Birdseye Road) and Fienemann Road to where it terminates at its intersection with South Road
  • South Road from the intersection with Route 4 (Farmington Avenue) to the intersection with Colt Highway
  • Portions of SR 549 (Birdseye Road), at the intersections with South Road and Colt Highway
  • Middle Road, beginning at South Road to its transition to Tunxis Road as it enters West Hartford
  • Munson Road, between Middle Road and South Road
  • Other local roads at intersections with the study area roadways

Tighe & Bond, Inc. is the lead consultant for the study. The study began in April 2016 with the onset of data collection efforts and is anticipated to be complete in Winter 2018.
