A virtual information session has been held about a state Department of Transportation proposal to designate part of Route 133 as a scenic road.  Bridgewater First Selectman Curtis Read opposes the plan because of a lack of public input, loss of local control and increased tourist traffic.  Read acknowledged that the road is a state route, but it's resident and town owned property that make it scenic. The proposal would extend from Brookfield, across the Lake Lillinonah bridge and past the boat launch, north through Bridgewater.  The designation would include the fairgrounds and downtown of the Village Center.  The designation would then cross to Route 67 in New Milford, across Veterans’ Bridge on Route 202.
