Milling and Resurfacing Project on Route 213 in New London and Waterford

Road work

The Connecticut Department of Transportation announced that a milling and resurfacing project will be performed on Route 213 in New London and Waterford.

The project consists of milling and resurfacing a 6.66-mile segment of Route 213 in New London and Waterford. The milling for this project is scheduled for Monday, September 14, 2020, through Thursday, October 8, 2020. The resurfacing of this project is anticipated to be performed on Monday, September 21, 2020, through Friday, October 9, 2020.

This project is included in the Department of Transportation’s 2020 Vendor Resurfacing Program.


Drivers can expect lane closures to occur on Route 213 from Route 1 New London to Route 156 in Waterford. Traffic control personnel and signing patterns will be utilized to guide drivers through the work zone. The regular work schedule for this project is from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (Monday – Friday).

Drivers should be aware that modifications or extensions to this schedule may become necessary due to weather delays or other unforeseen conditions, and are advised to maintain a safe speed when driving in this vicinity.

Upcoming Lane Closures on I-395

The Department also noted there will be nighttime lane closures on I-395 Northbound and Southbound in Montville and Norwich.

The lane closures are necessary, as the project nears completion, to facilitate ongoing construction activities associated with the project to replace median guiderail and grading of the entire median area, including incidental drainage adjustments. The left shoulder will be also closed using concrete barriers to provide for a safe work zone in the highway’s median area.

DOT Project No. 0103-0272 was awarded to Atlas Industrial Services, LLC of Branford, Connecticut, for a cost of $3.2 million on September 30, 2019 and is scheduled to be completed October 30, 2020.

Drivers are advised to use caution when traveling through the work zone.
