This project involves realignment of the subject intersection such that the offset side streets of House Street and Harris Street will intersect Griswold Street opposite one another. This will result in a much-improved level of service and queues will be reduced significantly. The Connecticut Department of Transportation has reviewed the preliminary design plans and comments are being addressed. A public information meeting to present the preliminary design plans was held on October 16, 2013 in the Town Council Chambers. Overall project schedule envisions completion of design plans in 2014 with 2015 construction.
January 2016 Update: This project was substantially completed in November of 2015 and has successfully alleviated traffic congestion at this location. Remaining work for 2016 includes final restoration of the disturbed lawn areas, installation of overhead street signs, and various other punch list items. Final completion is expected by May 1, 2016.
