Beginning today (Monday, Nov. 19), motorists will find changes to the traffic pattern near Storrs Center. The newly constructed portion of Dog Lane will be open to two-way traffic. This is the portion of the road in front of 1 Dog Lane (Subway, Insomnia Cookies). Motorists will be able to turn right from the new Dog Lane to travel north on Storrs Road/Route 195. There will be no left turn from the new Dog Lane.
Motorists wishing to turn left to travel south on Storrs Road/Route 195 will use a temporary road connecting the existing Dog Lane to Bolton Road. This temporary road will meet Bolton Road at the existing traffic light.
Motorists traveling south on Storrs Road may turn left onto the new Dog Lane or continue to the Bolton Road intersection and turn left at the light. Motorists traveling north on Storrs Road may turn right at the Bolton Road intersection or continue to the new Dog Lane and turn right.
This new traffic pattern will be in effect through much of 2013 as construction progresses in the downtown. Questions may be directed to the Mansfield Downtown Partnership (firstname.lastname@example.org or 860.429.2740).
