NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) A $417 million contract has been awarded to build a new Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge on Interstate 95 over the Quinnipiac River, a project designed to alleviate one of Connecticut’s worst traffic bottlenecks.
The Connecticut Department of Transportation awarded the contract July 31 to low bidder Walsh-Poole Construction Ltd. to replace what is popularly known as the “Q’’ bridge.
Work begins next spring on a new bridge, with five lanes in each direction, exit and entrance ramps, and full shoulders and is scheduled to be finished in 2015.
The work is part of a $2.2 billion, 16-year initiative to unclog the New Haven corridor. The project began in 2000 with the construction of a train station on State Street for the Shoreline East commuter railroad.
