The Connecticut Department of Transportation (Department) will conduct a public information meeting concerning the proposed Intersection Improvements on Route 108 (Nichols Avenue) at Silver Lane and Armory Road on Wednesday, April 18, 2018, in Stratford at the Police Department (900 Longbrook Avenue, Startford, Connecticut 06614). An open forum for individual discussions with Department officials will begin at 6:30 p.m., followed by a design presentation at 7:00 p.m.
The project is identified as State Project No. 0144-0196.
The purpose of the project is to provide safety and operational improvements to the Route 108 at the Silver Lane and Armory Road intersection.

Adjustments to the adjacent traffic signal at Hawley Lane will be required to incorporate the newly installed signal at this intersection.
Right-of-way impacts associated with the proposed project are anticipated.
Construction is anticipated to begin in spring 2020 based on the availability of funding. The estimated construction cost for this project is approximately $1,200,000.
