A $50,000 difference of opinion between Brookfield and state Department of Transportation has been resolved so the town can move forward with a streetscape project at the Four Corners intersection of Routes 202 and 25.
Three tall metal poles on concrete foundations that hold up the traffic lights were put up four years ago, but the DOT has since changed their design standards. Town Economic Development Commission Vice Chair Greg Dembowski told Brookfield Patch that they have a verbal agreement from the DOT that the town doesn't have to install new poles.
The DOT recently provided a variance to the standards for a state road on three other issues. An encroachment permit is required by the DOT before Brookfield can go out to bid.
