Local projects bring road, ramp detours

The outbound ramp from Bigelow Boulevard to the Bloomfield Bridge will be closed until mid-August as part of a $12.34 million Route 380 road improvement project on Bigelow Boulevard, Baum Boulevard, North Craig Street and the Bloomfield Bridge.

Bridge traffic is being detoured by way of North Craig Street to Baum Boulevard to Liberty Avenue.

Beginning at 8 p.m. July 11, traffic on Bigelow Boulevard is scheduled to shift into the eastbound lanes through late August between North Craig Street and approximately Herron Avenue, then move to the newly constructed westbound lanes, with one lane of traffic maintained in each direction.

The project is scheduled to conclude in August 2016.

Other 2015 work includes:

• Roadway reconstruction of North Craig Street between Bigelow Boulevard and the Baum Boulevard Bridge.  A 91-day closure will be required.

• Multiple weekend closures of Blessing Street for roadway reconstruction.

• Reconstruction work on the Bloomfield Bridge ramps at Bigelow Boulevard. Two separate long-term ramp closures will occur.

Work to be done in 2016 includes deck replacement on the Baum Boulevard Bridge and milling/resurfacing of Baum Boulevard between the bridge and Morewood Avenue.

The project also includes new ADA curb-cut ramps, traffic signal upgrades and pavement reconstruction at the Bloomfield Bridge.
