The Connecticut Department of Transportation (ConnDOT) and Capitol Region Council of Governments (CRCOG) have initiated a study to identify the transportation needs and define near and long-term improvements along Route 195 in the Town of Tolland.
The study will focus on two items: (1) components that define the roadway system, the transit system and pedestrian/bicycle mobility and safety, and (2) the growth potential and impacts to area roadways from undeveloped and underutilized properties along Route 195.
The study will be carried out over the next 12- to 15-months by CRCOG and consultant, Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc. (VHB). Representatives from ConnDOT and the Town of Tolland will be consulted with throughout the process and a Municipal Advisory Committee appointed by the Tolland Town Council will help direct the study.
Route 195 Advisory Committee Meetings are open to the public as well and public participation is encouraged. You may scroll down for more information on Route 195 Advisory Committee Meetings.
You will find the latest information about the study on the Town’s website as well as at CRCOG’s website, which can be accessed by clicking here. Agendas and minutes will be posted on both sites as soon as they become available.
Questions may be directed to the Tolland Town Manager’s Office at 871-3600. The Project Manager for CRCOG is Thomas Maziarz, CRCOG’s Director of Transportation, who can be reached via e-mail at email@example.com.
