I-84 Widening to 8-lanes maps
« on: June 20, 2009, 08:33:31 PM »

Found some plans for the proposed widening of I-84 in Danbury, CT from 6 to 8 lanes.
The EIS for this just started earlier this year and would take 2-3 years to complete. 

The EIS would cover I-84 from NY to Exit 18 in Waterbury about 30 miles or so.  I-84 would be widened from 6-8 lanes from NY to Exit 8 and widened from 4 to 6 lanes from Exit 8 to 18, where it would meet up with the proposed 4-level stack in Watuerbury (currently being studied)

Exits 3-4 plan...one flaw: the on-ramp from US-7 to I-84WB would still be a left on-ramp.

Exit 5-6 plan

Exit 7 plan Note: the new flyover from Route 7 to I-84 & Exit 8.

All documents courtest of HVCEO, the planning organization of the region.

It's about time, getting through the whole Waterbury-Danbury corridor is horrendous.  Especially through the four lane portions it's like the Merritt, scenic and potentially very slow.

There are some short- and long-term maps for exits 9, 10, and 11 on this page: http://www.hvceo.org/transport/transport_plan3_majorcorridori84.php

The Route 25 freeway is no longer viable, but their plan for exit 11 is a real capitulation.

Kurumi: The 25 Freeway doesn't seem viable in the first place. Especially because it begins at the same interchange with CT 8 on the CT Turnpike :| - Do we actually need a CT 25 Freeway if 8 is already there?

It'd give a good chunk of the Connecticut coast (including and in particular Bridgeport, Milford, and New Haven) a freeway-grade facility to bypass the New York City area when heading to/from the west (via I-84).  Plus, since it's more viable than a CT 34 freeway, it'd provide better connection between the above-mentioned cities and Danbury.
