The state Department of Transportation is holding a public hearing next month on proposed intersection improvements in Newtown. The planned improvement project for the I-84 Exit 11 interchange at Wasserman Way also includes work on Route 34 at Toddy Hill Road.
The hearing is set for April 4th at 6:30pm at Newtown High School. The goal of the work is to reduce congestion in the area of Newtown High School.
Newtown started the improvements around Toddy Hill, but questions have come up over the highway access portions of the project after the Governor suspended transportation projects, due to the state's budget problems. The state's portion of the Exit 11 improvements has been engineered and the work is pending the allocation of funding, much of which is federal dollars.
