Route 3 Traffic and Development Study

The Capitol Region Council of Governments (CRCOG), the Connecticut Department of Transportation (ConnDOT) and the Town of Rocky Hill completed this study to address transportation deficiencies along the Route 3 corridor and surrounding areas in the Town of Rocky Hill.  The primary road segments included in the study area are Route 3 south of Route 160 (New Britain Avenue), West Street including its interchange with I-91 (Interchange 23), and Brook Street.

The purpose of the study is to ensure safe and efficient operations of vehicles, pedestrians, and bicyclists within the study area.  A comprehensive review of existing and future traffic conditions has been performed to identify area needs and deficiencies.  In response, transportation recommendations have been developed under the guidance of a Technical Review/Steering Committee (TR/SC).  These concepts, which are described in the final report, are the product of input from members of the public, business community, stakeholders, elected officials, and town staff.

Tighe & Bond, Inc. was the lead consultant for the study.
