Installations and Revisions of Traffic Control Signals in Various Connecticut Towns

The Department of Transportation (CTDOT) is developing plans to upgrade existing traffic control signal equipment or install new traffic control signal equipment to meet current Department standards at 11 locations in the cities and towns of Mansfield, New London, Plainfield, Portland, Deep River, Stonington, and Westbrook.

It is CTDOT’s policy to keep the public informed and involved when such projects are undertaken.  It is important that the community share its concerns with us to assist in the project’s development.  At this time, it is anticipated that an informational meeting or formal public hearing will not be necessary. 

The design plans for this project are expected to be completed in May 2024 with a tentative advertising date of July 2024.
