The Connecticut Department of Transportation is announcing that work to upgrade the at-grade railroad crossing carrying the Danbury Branch of the Metro-North Commuter Railroad on Honey Hill Road in Wilton will begin on Friday, April 7, 2017.
To facilitate the work, Honey Hill Road will be closed at the crossing beginning at 10 AM on Friday, April 7, until Thursday, April 13, 2017 at 4 PM.
The project will be performed and a detour will be implemented via signage by Metro-North Commuter Railroad. Work will be confined to the area of the at-grade crossing.
On Saturday (April 8th) and Sunday (April 9th) there will be no train service between Danbury and Norwalk. Metro-North Commuter Railroad will be providing bus service during these times (please refer to MTA website for more information). Train service is expected to resume on schedule on Monday (April 10th).
There will be an increase in noise levels in the vicinity of the railroad crossing due to the construction. There also will be construction activities occurring at night starting Friday (April 7th) until Monday morning (April 10th).
