DOT meeting in Newtown on intersection realignment

The state Department of Transportation is holding a hearing tonight in Newtown on a proposed intersection realignment.

 

State officials are hosting an informational session tonight about a plan to create a four-way intersection for Church Hill Road, Commerce Road and Endmond Road.  The proposal was made to reduce the number of accidents at the intersection and to ease congestion on Church Hill Road, Route 6. 

 

Side walks would be added to increase pedestrian access as well.  A left turn lane would be created on Endmond Road, Route 6 would be widened a bit and the stop lights would be synchronized. 

 

The project is estimated to cost about $4 million.  It would be paid for mostly with federal funds and only about 20-percent of state funding.  The construction work, if approved and funding secured, would start in 2016 and take a little more than a year to complete.

 

The meeting starts at 6:30pm with a presentation at 7pm at the Newtown Municipal Center.
