The Hartford Police Department is reminding commuters and patrons to our city to be aware and expect a traffic impact Friday afternoon (4/15) through rush hour and beyond in the area of the Connecticut Convention Center. Expect delays in the area of State St., American Row, Columbus Blvd and access to the Founders Bridge. The Hartford Police Department will have Traffic Division Officers in the area to facilitate smooth traffic flow.
Business commuters who anticipate leaving the city, via the Columbus Blvd and Founders Bridge area, should consider leaving early or choosing an alternate route.
If you plan on attending the event at the Connecticut Convention Center we ask that you arrive early. Security measures will be prevalent and highly visible. Entry to the venue will be contingent upon passing through tight security- this is a time consuming process. Early arrival is suggested.
As always, we ask anyone coming to our city to please be respectful to our City, our community and our services.
Beginning April 11th, Pratt Street will be closed to vehicular traffic due to construction activities related to the Pratt Street Improvements project. Pratt Street will remain closed to vehicular traffic for the duration of construction which is anticipated to be completed this fall. Sidewalks will be accessible to pedestrian traffic at all times during construction. Businesses along Pratt Street will be open during construction.
