An intersection reconfiguration project is starting today in Newtown. Church Hill Road, Edmond Road and Commerce Road will be turned into a four-way, traffic light controlled intersection, with turning lanes. The goal is to improve traffic flow and reduce accidents. The southern end of Edmond Road is being realigned to the west while Church Hill Road will be widened slightly. Sidewalks on both sides of Church Hill Road will also be installed. Some trees will be removed and utility poles repositioned, along with some business driveways relocated. During the project, which is expected to be completed by November 30th, there will be some alternating one way traffic on Church Hill Road. Cromwell-based Arborio Construction Company was awarded the $2.85 million bid.
