DOT to replace traffic light lamps in Greater Danbury area

The Connecticut Department of Transportation is planning to replace LED lamps at State owned traffic signals in various municipalities. This includes in Bethel, Brookfield, Danbury, New Fairfield, Newtown, Redding and Ridgefield. 

The life expectancy of the existing LED lamps is approximately 8 years; the project will proactively replace lamps in order to keep traffic signals functioning in a state of good repair. The new LED lamps to be installed under the project have a life expectancy of approximately 15 years. 

The project will also replace circular red lights with red arrows at locations that are not currently in compliance with requirements, and green arrow indications at eligible exit ramps as extra emphasis against a wrong way driving.  The project also calls for replacing existing Walk/Don’t Walk Pedestrian Signals with Countdown Pedestrian Signals.
