A local infrastructure project could get federal funding. The U.S. House passed the INVEST Act yesterday. 5th District Congresswoman Jahana Hayes is seeking $7.4 million for Route 202 intersection improvements in Brookfield.
Plans call for creating a 4-way signalized intersection with Old New Milford Road and a commercial driveway on Federal Road. There will also be dedicated left-turn lanes. The northern end of Old New Milford Road will be converted to one-way to allow vehicles to enter from Route 202.
The goal is to also address congestion by updating traffic signals from the BJ's/Kohls intersection to Route 133 and widen Federal Road between the BJ's/Kohl's intersection to the Costco intersection, with dedicated turn lanes. Sidewalks would also be added throughout that stretch.
Paving will also bring Federal Road to a state of good repair.
