Download as PDF 24060 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 82 / Tuesday, April 29, 2014 / Notices along the I–84 Corridor in Fairfield County and New Haven County, CT, for a distance of approximately 32 miles. The purposes of the proposed improvements were to improve safety and provide increased capacity to meet future traffic demands. Due to the reprioritization of major transportation projects in Connecticut and funding constraints, the CTDOT is no longer pursuing this project. Therefore, the NOI for this project is rescinded. Studies are being done to determine specific safety and capacity improvements along the I–84 corridor, and any future transportation improvements will progress under a separate environmental review process, in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations.
