Stabilization of Rock Cuts, Route 8 Northbound, Shelton, CT
The State of Connecticut Department of Transportation determined that work of an emergency nature was required on Route 8 Northbound in Shelton, south of the Long Hill Cross Road overpass. Guerrera Construction Company, Inc. was selected to perform the work, which included closing the right shoulder and right acceleration lane along Route 8 Northbound, protecting the work zone with precast barrier, signage, and temporary line striping. Mechanical scaling of the cut rock face was performed to remove the unstable material and avoid future rockslides in the area. Once the work on the rock face was completed, the work area was cleared, and traffic returned to full utilization of the roadway.
