The northeast regional America’s Transportation Award in the Quality of Life/Community Development category was awarded to the Connecticut Department of Transportation for reconstruction of the New Haven, Connecticut I-95/I-91/Route 34 Interchange, one of the busiest and most congested in the U.S.
Louis Berger provided construction engineering and inspection services on the comprehensive project, which included replacement of more than 20 bridges and looping ramps, construction of multiple two-lane interstate-to-interstate connections, and improvements to local roads, two interstate highways and one state highway.
The six-year, $366 million project has increased capacity, improved safety and reduced congestion at the busy multilevel interchange, resulting in easier, safer commutes for Connecticut residents.
America’s Transportation Awards, co-sponsored by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), the American Automobile Association (AAA) and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, recognize state Departments of Transportation and highlight the projects they’ve delivered to make their communities a better place to live, work and play. The Quality of Life/Community Development category highlights innovative projects that better connect people to businesses, jobs, health care facilities, and recreational activities while encouraging a mix of transportation modes.
