Route 15 and Route 7 / Route 15 and Main Ave.

Town of Norwalk

Scope of work

Scope of  Work

The project consists of the construction of a full-directional interchange between U.S. Route 7 and Route 15 (Merritt Parkway), while maintaining access for Main Avenue to and from Route 15.  


Between June and November 2008, the Department of Transportation has held a series of stakeholder meetings with local residents, special interest groups, historic advocates and public agencies.  ConnDOT and the group have examined the project’s purpose and need; discussed safety and traffic issues; gained a better understanding of the community’s issues and concerns; reviewed previous design alternatives; and developed a new proposed design, Alternative 21.  We believe the meetings have been very successful and that there is consensus among the stakeholders that new Alternative 21 is the new preferred design alternate.  At this time, ConnDOT would like to put this alternate forward for public comment at a public forum February 25 2009.
