What's with all the road construction?

What is going on with all the bridge and road work from the Gold Star Bridge to Old Mystic?

It seems like a lot of it is frivolous - breaking concrete and repouring it at the base of overpass walls; adding fences along the top of overpasses; replacing all the wire guard rails with metal ones and adding more; regrading and paving the breakdown lane on the northbound side between Exits 88 and 89; regrading before Exit 88 southbound and building a concrete wall at the end of the exit.

It seems the state could put some of this expenditure to better use, such as more tree trimming/removal around power lines.
