Summer is quickly approaching and the 2013 Mayor’s Summer Youth Guide is here! The Mayor’s Summer Youth Guide is a tool to a summer of fun, learning and adventure. With this guide, we hope to make this summer the best ever for our city's youth. Inside you'll find a number of programs for children and youth of all ages, from preschool to young adults.
Many of the programs in the guide are free to low-cost. There is also a convenient listing of dozens of sites across the City for the free summer meals program. The guide is available on the City of New Haven’s website
If you need further information about youth programs in New Haven, please call the City's Youth Specialist at 203-946-8583.

Exit 3 of Rt. 34 Permanently Closing; Will Cause Traffic Detours and Delays
Exit 3 of Route 34 will be closed permanently on Thursday, May 2, 2013 to allow for construction of the historic New Haven Downtown Crossing Project which will remove the highway, reconnect City streets, and provide the City of New Haven with approximately 11 acres of developable land. The City of New Haven wants the public to be aware that this closure will cause detours and delays. Residents and commuters are urged to sign up to receive weekly traffic alerts that will keep them informed about traffic changes.
