STAMFORD, CT - Tuesday, State Senator Carlo Leone announced that the State Bond Commission has green-lighted a new road construction project along a stretch of the Merritt Parkway between Stamford and New Canaan.

The road work will include resurfacing of 6.4 miles of road, in addition to updated safety improvements and repair of 13 bridges which span the Parkway. The project will create or retain approximately 201 construction related jobs.

Senator Leone said, "The Merritt Parkway is one of two main highways in Southwest Connecticut, an essential part of our infrastructure and a major artery of our local economy. We cannot afford to have the Merritt fall into disrepair. This resurfacing effort will support 201 construction jobs, and upon its completion, will help to reduce traffic and serve as a corridor to fuel future economic growth in our region."

The project is part of the larger Merritt Parkway Improvement Plan, which is intended to address and upgrade safety issues along the entire 37.5 mile length of the Parkway. To date 19 miles of the project have been completed.

This latest portion of the effort will be advertised to contractors in February of next year. $9,600,000 in state bonds will be issued to finance the work, in addition to federal funds. Construction is expected to begin in June of 2013.
