Dear Friends and Neighbors,

The Connecticut Department of Transportation has announced a public information meeting scheduled for April 7th regarding projects to improve horizontal curve waring signs. Read the full announcement below for more information regarding the scope of the project and how to participate in the public meeting:

Public Information Meeting April 7, 2022 re: Reinstallation and Removal of Horizon Curve Warning Signs in District 2 (Towns of Columbia / Killingworth / East Haddam / Marlborough / East Lyme / Old Lyme)

The Department of Transportation (Department) will conduct a Public Informational Meeting concerning the proposed reinstallation and removal of Horizontal Curve Warning Signs on State roads in DOT District 2 on Thursday, April 7th, 2022. The formal presentation will begin at 6:30 p.m.

The project is identified as State Project No. 0172-0477

The purpose of the project is to improve driver response to curve warning signs by making their use more uniform across the state. This will involve reinstalling and removing curve warning signs at approximately 2,200 locations in District 2. Existing signing at many curves does not currently meet the requirements of the Federal Highway Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD).

Right-of-way impacts associated with the proposed project are not anticipated.

Construction is anticipated to begin in spring 2023. The estimated construction cost for this project is approximately $6.8 million. This project is anticipated to be undertaken with 100% percent Federal Funds.
