State to check for Route 7 project mistakes
The state is inspecting the Route 7 widening project in New Milford to make certain mistakes a contractor made on an I-84 widening project were not repeated on Route 7.
The state Department of Transportation and the state attorney general are investigating projects by L.G. DeFelice, Inc., which failed in 2005. They are also investigating the DeFelice successor company, Hallberg Contracting Corp. of West Haven.
Late Monday, Gov. M. Jodi Rell ordered an independent audit of the I-84 project.
DeFelice officially defaulted on the Route 7 widening project in New Milford in May. It was immediately replaced by Hallberg Contracting Corp., which is run by the former president of DeFelice, Stephen Hallberg.

Good Lord! She orders an audit?
Which crony will you hand more cash out to in order to have your "independent audit"?
I'll give you an audit for free:
Republican Rell gave the contract to cronies (Business as usual for Republicans) and when they messed up so badly, and went bankrupt, Rell turned around and handed the project to a company headed up by Stephen Hallberg, the former president of the same company that messed up the first time!
Jodi Rell's "DeFelice-ing" of OUR public funds through gross incompetence...
Not just once, BUT TWICE!
First on the I-84 project, and the second time on the Super 7 project.
Nothing like repeating your same mistakes over and over again.
Care to rethink whom you should vote for Governor of Connecticut (or for any level of government these days...) if you are a fiscal conservative?
You sure can't vote for the GOP and expect them to take care of your money.
