A cell tower is being erected in Ridgefield. The Ridgefield Press reports that the Ridgebury cell tower was being brought to the site off Ledges Road Tuesday in pieces, but the truck was too big for the access road. Workers transferred the equipment to a smaller truck to be brought in to the site.
Residents initially rejected the town purchasing open space land and building the tower, but the deal went through with a private buyer.
The cell tower will help improve police, fire and town emergency radio equipment, upgrades that were approved by Ridgefield voters in May for $3.7 million.
