During the streetscape project in the Four Corners area of Brookfield, drivers may experience only one lane of traffic getting by on Federal Road. First Selectman Steve Dunn says work will continue through October. Brookfield Police are providing traffic control. Residents are asked to drive with caution through the Town Center. Work now includes resetting and adding storm drains, resetting utility valve gates and installing two underground utility crossings under Federal Road.
Dunn says the contractor has been onsite for about two weeks and is currently redoing the drainage and placing conduit under the road from the west side of Federal Road to the east side of Federal Road. This is part of the plan to eliminate all of the telephone poles on the east side of Federal Road south of the intersection.
In about two weeks, granite curbing will start to be installed. The project will begin at Webster Bank, and on average, about 150 feet per day of curbing will be added over the next seven weeks.
