SEYMOUR – State Representative Nicole Klarides-Ditria announced on Tuesday that improvements will be made by the Department of Transportation to the exit 22 on and off-ramps on Route 8.

Rep. Klarides-Ditria wrote a letter in 2017 asking the Department of Transportation to review the safety of the exit 22 on and off-ramps on Route 8 in both directions.

“I received many complaints that exit 22 on Route 8 was unsafe,” said Rep. Klarides-Ditria. “I want to thank the Department of Transportation for reviewing this matter and making the necessary improvements to the area to prevent accidents and keep residents safe.”

The DOT will enhance the visibility of the curve in the vicinity of exit 22 by installing signing and will relocate existing warning signs to warn drivers earlier of the curve. In addition, retroreflective delineators will be installed on the median barrier.
