This project consists of reconstructing a 0.5 mile segment of Central Ave. from University Boulevard to Verity Parkway (Canal St.) in the City of Middletown. The project will upgrade aging infrastructure that is in poor condition by replacing pavement, curb, sidewalk, water main and services, and street lighting. The project will also include rehabilitating the existing combined sewer, providing new storm sewer with sustainable storm water management BMPs, traffic calming, technology infrastructure, and other functional streetscape amenities consistent with the City’s Downtown Master Plan. New signal installations, updated signal timing, and left turn lanes on Central Avenue will be installed at the existing signalized intersections with Verity Parkway and Clinton Street.
Construction began in February 2022, with substantial completion by late winter, 2023.
