Casino’s traffic plan would expand access to I-495

Traffic engineers hired by Foxwoods Massachusetts have designed a $100 million plan to reconstruct 3.4 miles of Interstate 495 and add a connecting road to Route 16 through the site of its proposed $1 billion casino in Milford, a design they say would keep more than 90 percent of drivers heading to the casino off local roads.

The 46-page plan calls for adding two “collector/distributer” lanes to Interstate 495 in each direction that would connect with the highway’s interchanges at routes 109 and 85. The added lanes would provide access to the casino and Route 16 via a new road that would be built through the 187-acre property.
