DOT plans to rehabilitate stretch of Rte. 372


The Connecticut Department of Transportation’s Office of Engineering is developing plans to rehabilitate the pavement on CT Route 372 in the towns of Berlin and Cromwell. The project involves rehabilitating the pavement on Route 372 between mile markers 9.22 and 13.23. This includes Mill St./Route 372 in Berlin from Worthington Ridge southeast to the Cromwell town line/Mattabassett River.

The purpose of the project is to preserve the pavement condition. Construction is anticipated to start in the spring of 2023, assuming acceptance of the project, availability of funding and receipt of any required right-of-way and environmental permits. This project will be undertaken with 100 percent state funds.

It is the Department of Transportation’s policy to keep the public informed and involved when such projects are undertaken. It is important that the community share its concerns with the department to assist in the project's development. A public informational meeting will not be conducted for this project, as its scope is considered routine maintenance.

Berlin officials recommend property owners who abut Mill Street and are planning work within or near the state right-of-way this spring/summer contact the DOT. This includes paving and underground utility projects. Additionally, any organization planning an event in that area should also supply the DOT with their information and schedule.
