An informational meeting is being held in Ridgefield Thursday night by the state Department of Transportation on proposals to ease traffic congestion on Main Street. The $3.15 million project would revamp Main Street between Governor and Prospect streets.
Pedestrian crossing improvements, dedicated left-turn lanes, realigning the CVS shopping plaza entrance and replacing some trees are all part of the proposal. 80-percent of the project would be funded with federal dollars, with the balance coming from the state. Construction could begin next year, if funding is available.
A design presentation will start at 7pm with a chance to meet with representatives at 6:30 Thursday in the school board room of the town hall annex. If postponement is required due to inclement weather, the public hearing will be held on April 12, at the original hour and location.
