Work is continuing to create a new entrance for the Danbury Public Works Department off Newtown Road. Director Antonio Iadarola says paving in that area is almost substantially complete. The state has done line painting as well. The City has started construction of a new driveway, with the first 150 feet done. They've also removed old, dead trees on the hill by the Public Works complex. The City worked with the state to move Public Works traffic to the bottom of the hill. The new traffic light is designed to accommodate the driveway because Iadarola says the existing left turn onto Newtown Road is like risking drivers lives each time and is worse in winter. He is touting sight line improvements included in the project, which Iadarola says should be completed in the next two months. Danbury, the state and Hawley Construction also entered into a land swap agreement for the new driveway, which Hawley is sharing a portion of with Public Works. The City also received market value for the fill taken from that site, which was later sold.
