What is going on with State Street? Why is construction taking years?
I hear that is supposed to open by end of year.
What is the tab at now ? How much has the City/State and any other sucker who gave here spent so far ?
Typical City of New Haven SOP. If they had any idea of what there schedule, for completing this project, is, then don't you think they would be happy to communicate it? I wonder if there's money in the budget to finish this debacle?
They managed to get a few million to "study" a football field; never mind that football is unequivocally linked with brain damage - must be the future leaders of New Haven...
I'm surprised that in an old industrial city, like New Haven, where there are centuries of buried toxic waste, that SOP doesn't include ground penetrating radar or routine testing for plumes of buried contaminants - before construction starts. Practically every yard in the flats of East Rock has a toxic layer of coal ash and lead paint in the soil.
@#$% Miller said that there was a buried tank on this site, from an old gas station ( didn't anyone look at an old photograph to see what might have been here before the CT DOT delivered the coup de grace of I91?), then the story changed. Also, they're worried about contaminated water flowing into the Mill River, while I91 overpass drains directly, from the roadway, into the river below - pot meet kettle, river meet brake lining dust, rubber particulates, nitrogen, motor oil, salt, etc...
The new remediation plan was supposed to have been started in December 2011. Compared to English Station or the scrap metal yard on Chapel St. how much additional pollution are we talking about?
Sorry, this issue does not have any images or videos.
