Construction is finishing up along Newtown Road by the Danbury Public Works facility and the state Department of Transportation is working on other improvements further along toward exit 8. The City has applied for funding to do work along White Street, aimed at easing traffic congestion in the area of West Conn's parking garage. There were some questions from City Council members about improvements at other areas between the projects. Councilwoman Colleen Stanley asked if there's anything under consideration for the area where White Street becomes Newtown Road, near the intersection with Federal Road. Public Works Director Antonio Iadarola says the state is interested in continuing work there because of the traffic tie ups. The traffic lights there currently can't handle the volume of cars travelling through the area.
