Interchange 57/58 Improvements on Route 15 Southbound, Orange, CT
The Connecticut Department of Transportation’s (Department) Office of Engineering is developing plans to make interchange improvements on Route 15 southbound at Exit 57 in the town of Orange. The purpose of the project is to reduce the occurrence of rear-end crashes and congestion at the on-ramp from Route 34 eastbound onto Route 15 southbound, by removing the stop-controlled interchange to provide an acceleration lane for traffic to merge onto Route 15. The project involves widening Route 15 for the acceleration lane which will require tree removal and modifying pavement markings. Additionally, all four inner loop ramps will be milled and overlaid with high friction pavement.
