NEW HAVEN — The hands that played a part in creating the Downtown Crossing initiative picked up shovels and tossed some dirt to mark the groundbreaking of a project Mayor John DeStefano Jr. says will “reconnect” the city.

Phase 1 of the project was kicked off Friday on the grass between the lanes that make up Route 34 — which will be no more once the project is completed. Where officials, residents and press stood will be part of the nearly 11-acre development the city plans to stretch from the Hill neighborhood to downtown.
