Amtrak continues the installation of underground signal and communication cables, the first portion of construction for the New Haven-Hartford-Springfield (NHHS) Rail Program. This work is required to upgrade signal and communication systems for the NHHS rail corridor and prepare for subsequent track and infrastructure improvements to re-establish Track 2.
During the week of December 31st, excluding holiday observances on December 31st and January 1, 2013, the following installation work at grade crossings is scheduled. Please note that this schedule is approximate and subject to change:
Week of December 31st:
- Wallingford: Ward Street, Quinnipiac Street, Hall Avenue, Parker Street, North Plains Highway - Cable installation
- West Hartford: New Britain Avenue – Lane closures for overhead bridge work
There will be occasional traffic interruptions at these grade crossings as the cable installation is progressed. Every effort will be made to limit these disruptions, which should last no longer than fifteen minutes.
Future updates on the status and location of cable installation activities will be provided on the NHHS program website at www.nhhsrail.com and by email. To receive email updates, please register on the NHHS program website.
