The state Department of Transportation will host a public information meeting at Western Connecticut State University today about improvement plans for Interstate 84 in Danbury. The daylong open house at the Student Center is meant to be an introduction to proposals to improve safety, increase capacity, and improve access between Exits 3 and 8.
Engineers and planners will be on hand between noon and 8pm to take questions and suggestions.
The eight-mile stretch is one of the top priorities of the I-84 corridor.
The improvement project is in the early stage of the planning process with the project team reaching out to local residents, commuters, business owners, and other interested parties. Subsequent phases will include environmental studies. Freight interests, bicycle, and pedestrian advocates are also being sought by planners to ensure the project meets public expectations.
