Time to get used to detours. After a delay Monday, the state Department of Transportation permanently shut down Flower Street Tuesday to vehicular traffic as part of construction for the $567 million CTfastrak busway.
Pedestrians and bicyclists can still access the road, but as Don Stacom wrote last week, they might occasionally encounter brief closures as construction crews build a busway crossing along the Amtrak rail line, between the Asylum Hill and Frog Hollow neighborhoods.
It appears that rush-hour traffic for the nearby I-84 on-ramp, off Broad Street, will truly be backed up for the foreseeable future. Courant reporters can attest to that — our building is right in the thick of all this heavy machinery.
