A couple of construction projects are planned by the state Department of Transportation.
Route 53 in Redding will be closed for a bridge replacement project starting in mid-June. Route 53 will be closed at Umpawaug Road from June 13th through the end of August.
The DOT is also developing plans for lighting replacement along Route 7 in Danbury and Brookfield as well as Interstate-84 in Danbury and Bethel. The project involves replacement of existing light poles, foundations, and underground circuitry. The project is aimed at improving the operation and reduce the maintenance requirements of the roadway lighting systems. Final design plans are expected to be completed by October.
Federal funding will pay for 80-percent of the project.
