Intersection improvements are coming to a heavily traveled part of Danbury. A 2-point-65 million dollar grant has been awarded by the state to the City for upgrades to the White Street and Locust Avenue intersection. The City will pay for the design costs. The project includes adding dedicated turning lanes. Some pedestrian safety improvements will also be made. The Public Works Department will re-time the traffic lights from the West Conn parking garage down to the intersection with Federal Road. Construction could start as soon as the late summer or early fall and is expected to take 18 months.
