The I-95 Eastern CT PEL Study is an early-planning effort to identify improvements that would reduce congestion and improve travel time along Interstate 95 (I-95) from Exit 53 in Branford to the Rhode Island state line.
The purpose of this first public information meeting is to provide an overview of the concerns in the corridor related to the growing traffic and increased drive times, explain the PEL Study process, and ask for feedback on the Draft Purpose and Need of future projects within the corridor.
