Hartford I-84 Viaduct Study

I-84 Viaduct Study Report

Project Overview:

The Connecticut Department of Transportation (ConnDOT) previously evaluated the I-84 viaduct structure in Hartford.  That analysis concluded that the

¾-mile long structure through the central area of Hartford while in need of immediate repairs, will also need to be fully reconstructed or replaced within 10-15 years.  A short-term repair project was recently completed and ConnDOT continues to monitor the structure, but these repairs are not considered a permanent fix.  ConnDOT recognizes there is a need to continue the planning and community involvement process for the longer-term reconstruction or replacement of the Viaduct.

CRCOG managed the initial phase of the Viaduct planning process on behalf of the City, working through a committee of stakeholders entitled the HUB of Hartford.  The goal of the study was to identify several preliminary, technically sound alternatives to reconstruct, replace or remove this structure and evaluate their ability to improve the quality of life in surrounding neighborhoods, support existing businesses and promote economic development.  The final report and executive summary are available in the Study Documents section below.

Since the completion of the initial planning study, ConnDOT has taken the lead on the planning process.  The latest information on this effort may be found on  the Hartford I-84 Viaduct Planning Process Updates webpage.
