Local Headlines

A traffic engineer, who is also the I-84 Danbury Project Manager, recently took a couple of helicopter rides over the highway to see where traffic congestion is the biggest issue.  The team was surprised to see that there was only one pinch point area in the morning, but the whole corridor gets bad in the evening.  Sharat Kalluri called it eye-catching that the evening commute was broadly and consistently difficult from the New York State line to Exit 7.  No surprise to local motorists, that's over seven miles of congestion.  The flight videos were presented to the Project Advisory Committee recently and are available on the project website.
