Strobel Road Construction

Project Description

The Town of Trumbull Engineering Department is currently working on a Roadway Reconstruction of Strobel Road (from Daniels Farm Road to Booth Hill Road). 

The scope of work will include intersection improvements at Daniels Farm Road, culvert improvements, roadway re-alignment, full depth roadway reconstruction and drainage improvements, etc.

This is a long-term project that will require multiple years to complete (weather dependent). Location of work along Strobel Road will be updated as the project progresses. Various sections of the road will be closed to through traffic at different times throughout this process.  The Town of Trumbull will endeavor to keep disturbance to a minimum.  However, your patience will be much appreciated. Construction work is anticipated to start at 7:00 AM daily.  All bus stops will remain at their current locations.

The State of Connecticut will provide 100% of the construction costs and the Town of Trumbull was only required to fund the design of the project.
