WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) - Work on widening the Interstate 84 corridor in Waterbury is one of several major transportation improvement projects across the state that’s set to begin this spring.

Other projects sharing some of approximately $1.8 billion in state and federal transportation funds include work on replacing the Q-Bridge in New Haven along I-95 and rehabilitating the Putnam Bridge along Route 3 in Glastonbury.

Also, funding is included to replace the I-84 viaduct in Hartford, rehabilitate a portion of the Merritt Parkway in Stamford and make various improvements along I-95 in Norwalk.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and other Connecticut officials on Tuesday announced the major projects planned for this year’s construction season during a news conference along I-84 in Waterbury. The projects are part of a five-year highway, bridge and rail improvement plan.
