Traffic Alert: Major Intersection Construction – Hartford

Beginning Monday, June 18, the City of Hartford will begin construction at the intersection of Maple Avenue, Jefferson Street, Main Street and Retreat Avenue near the northeast corner of the Hartford Hospital campus. This work will significantly improve the intersection, which is currently complex and frequently congested.

The construction will take place each weekday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is expected to last five to six months. During construction hours, traffic will be restricted or redirected. This may cause significant delays and detours.

Please plan ahead and consider alternate routes in the coming months. If you expect to go anywhere near this intersection during construction hours, allow for plenty of extra time to get where you need to go.
