Due to construction of the new Dog Lane connection to Storrs Road (Route 195) as part of the Storrs Center project, Dog Lane will be closed between Route 195 and Bundy Lane beginning today (Thursday, July 19, 2012), according to an announcement made by the Town of Mansfield today.
“We expect this portion of the road to be reopened to traffic by Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2012,” the announcement states.
“Businesses located on Dog Lane between Willowbrook Road and Storrs Road (Route 195) should direct their employees and customers coming from Storrs Road to use Gurleyville Road and Bundy Lane as a temporary detour.”
Gurleyville Road is across from UConn’s north campus, next to the College of Agriculture and Natural Sciences.
“From the intersection with Bundy Lane, Dog Lane will be limited to local traffic between Bundy Lane and Willowbrook Road to allow access to Dog Lane residents and businesses, according to the announcement.
All construction traffic to Storrs Center will be rerouted through UConn property; no construction traffic will be directed to other local roads, according to the announcement.
Any problems with construction traffic or the road closure should be directed to the Town Manager’s Office during office hours at 860 429-3336 or via email to StorrsCenterInfo@mansfieldct.org
