Work Progressing

With the erection of the pre-cast components complete, work on the interior of the parking garage is progressing, including underground utilities and placing the main level concrete slab.

Across the street, work on the interior finishes of both the residential and commercial levels continues.  In front of the buildings, the realignment of Dog Lane is underway.  The current focus of this work is on the utilities.

Bus Stop Closed During Construction

Work on the streetscape improvements has begun along Storrs Road (Route 195).  During construction, Windham Region Transit District (WRTD) and UConn Transportation Services will not use the bus stop located in front of Mansfield’s Town Hall.  Passengers may use the bus stop at Mansfield Apartments (on S. Eagleville Road/Route 275) or catch the north-bound bus at the stop located on the opposite side of Route 195 from the Town Hall.  The stop in front of Town Hall will remain out of commission for the next few months while construction continues.

Questions or concerns may be directed to the Town of Mansfield Public Works Department (860.429.3331) or StorrsCenterInfo@mansfieldct.org. 

Construction along Storrs Road (Route 195) has begun.

Reaching the Top

The final piece of pre-cast for the parking garage has been installed.  The large crane will be dismantled and will leave the site.  The focus for the garage will now be completing the mechanical and electrical components for the scheduled August opening.

Workers guide the final pre-cast piece into place.

This crane's work is done.

Meanwhile, the work on 1 Dog Lane and 9 Dog Lane continues.  The interior spaces are progressing as are the exterior finishes, including the first floor commercial spaces.

The utilities work on Dog Lane is on-going.  The street remains closed to through traffic during the day, and local traffic is restricted to alternating one lane to accommodate the work.

The facades of 1 Dog Lane and 9 Dog Lane are taking shape, while the utilities work on Dog Lane continues.  In the background, UConn's School of Fine Arts and South Campus are visible.
