The state Department of Transportation is accepting grant applications from municipalities for projects that are intended to improve local traffic corridors. Danbury Public Works Director Antonio Iadarola has received authorization from the City Council to apply for a $3 million grant for White Street, between Meadow and Cross streets, which would cover 100-percent of the cost. The 1900 feet includes five intersections. This would be an extension of a project that is currently being designed for improvements to White Street at Locust Avenue. An additional westbound lane would be added to alleviate traffic congestion. The goal is to provide continuous and improved sidewalks for safe pedestrian mobility, crosswalks where needed, and shared lanes for bicycle traffic. Iadarola says as part of the work they'll reorganize transit bus stops and improve signage. The deadline to apply for grant funding is tomorrow.
