Guide rails have been put up along part of Federal Road in Brookfield.  Police say they were placed along the east shoulder of the roadway, from just North of the northbound exit 12 ramp to just beyond the intersection of Laurel Hill Road.  Police say this will help keep errant vehicles from leaving the roadway and traveling down the embankment in the direction of the Still River Greenway Trail as it parallels Federal Road in this area.  The installation was the result of discussions between the Town of Brookfield and the Connecticut Department of Transportation.
