Brookfield is seeking an exemption to the standard state road shoulder width on the next phase of the streetscape project in the Town Center. Project Manager Greg Dembowski and Police Chief Jay Purcell are going to meet with representatives of the state Department of Transportation later this morning.
Parallel parking on both sides of the road means there will be less of a shoulder.
Phase 2 goes from the end of Phase 1 on the southern boundary to the Hearth restaurant.
A second crosswalk there will allow people coming from Laurel Hill to get to the other side of the road.
The plan calls for sidewalks on both sides of Federal Road and a bike path on the east side, connecting to the Still River Greenway. That path will lead to a pedestrian crossing connecting to the bike bath on the west side, at the funeral home.
