Traffic Control Signal Upgrades in Cheshire
The Connecticut Department of Transportation (Department) is developing plans to install new traffic control signal equipment to upgrade the pedestrian control features to meet current Department standards at three (3) locations in the town of Cheshire. Where applicable pedestrian control features (countdown pedestrian indications, accessible pushbuttons, upgraded sidewalk ramps, and crosswalks) will be upgraded in an effort to improve accessibility and pedestrian safety. The following intersections are included:
- Cheshire – Route 10 (South Main Street) at Route 42 (North Brooksvale Road) (Intersection No. 025-202)
- Cheshire – Route 10 (Highland Avenue) at Creamery Road and Private Drive (Intersection No. 025-218)
- Cheshire – Route 10 (South Main Street) at Cornwall Avenue (Intersection No. 025-226)
It is the Department’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 the project are expected to be completed in June 2019 with a tentative advertising date for construction of August 2019. The construction phase is contingent upon available funding.
Anyone interested in requesting information on these projects may do so by contacting Gregory R. Palmer, Project Manager, at (860) 594-2748 or via email at email@example.com. Please make reference to Project No. 0025-0147.
