New Haven Mayor John DeStefano said that a planned highway exit will not cut through the Long Wharf Nature Preserve.
DeStefano will be joined by Department of Transportation Commissioner James Redeker, the New Haven Land Trust, elected officials and veterans at an event Monday afternoon to make the announcement.
The decision comes after meetings with city planners, members of the New Haven Land Trust and residents in the City Point neighborhood.
The announcement will be made at 5 p.m. at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on Long Wharf Drive.
