DOT meeting in Brookfield on proposed Federal Road improvements

Plans have been proposed by the state DOT for safety improvements in Brookfield along lower Federal Road. 

There will be a Public Information meeting about this project tonight at 7pm in room 133 at Town Hall.  The work would be done from the driveway of BJ's/Kohl’s shopping plaza to the intersection with Route 133/Junction Road.  Four intersection safety improvements will be made, the road will be widened to provide 4-foot shoulders to improve safety for bicyclists and 5-foot sidewalks will be added to accommodate pedestrian traffic along the corridor.   

The state has proposed adding dedicated left-turn lanes into Chick-Fil-A and Shop Rite plaza.  Traffic lights will be added at the intersection of Beverly Drive/Hardscrabble Road and the southern intersection with Old New Milford Road, along with the removal of one of two traffic signals at the northern intersection. 

Designs should be completed in January 2021 with construction expected to begin that summer.  The cost is estimated at $6 million, with 80-percent being paid for with federal funding.  Some right-of-way acquisitions are required with project.
