Construction Updates

Design/ Permitting/ Construction

The Connecticut Airport Authority is beginning the reconstruction and realignment of the main airport entrance roadway, Route 20 and Schoephoester Rd.

The work will involve the realignment of Schoephoester Road along with a portion of the airport’s lower roadway system, as well as the construction of a modern roundabout.

The project will provide a new entrance to the airport from Route 20 and open up a 19-acre site for the future development of Bradley’s ground transportation center.

The construction will not interrupt access to the airport from the Route 20 connector. However, there may be slight delays due to the shifting and reduction of lanes.

Construction signs and variable message boards will be present along the roadway to alert motorists of any changes in traffic patterns.
The project will consist of six phases of work and is scheduled to be completed by the fall of 2018. Regular updates will be provided to the public during this time period.

April 02, 2018 Update
Schoephoester Road will be reduced to one lane for approximately a quarter mile stretch starting at the exit of Route 20 and culminating at the Hamilton Standard entrance. All required signage, roadway markings and channelizing devices will be placed.

April 20, 2018 Update
Construction activities will commence on April 23, 2018 between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. on the Lower Roadway (also known as Deplaning Road). Construction will consist of milling and repaving actives in this area. This work is anticipated to be completed April 30, 2018. Expect delays during this period.

Additionally, ongoing utility work will continue on the lower roadway in the vicinity of the Sheraton Hotel as well as at the intersection of Trap Rock Road and Schoesphoester Road. Travelers should expect minor delays.
