NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (WTNH) — If you see a lot of activity along the CT fastrak roadway Friday, there’s no need for concern. It’s only a drill.

Officials at CT fastrak announced they are holding emergency response drills Friday. The drills are scheduled to take place near the Downtown New Britain station, between Main Street and East Main Street.

The CT fastrak project includes 11 stations in New Britain, Newington, West Hartford and Hartford, with buses running every three-to-six minutes during peak commuting hours.

The 9.4-mile corridor also will be used by buses that will exit the system to bring passengers to destinations such as Westfarms Mall, Manchester Community College, UConn Health Center and Central Connecticut State University.

Officials say Hartford Express buses also will run from Bristol, Cheshire, Southington and Waterbury, entering the bus-only corridor once they reach New Britain.

Officials say the buses will begin running on March 28th.
