Public Information Sessions Scheduled for Statewide Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan and Map Update
The Connecticut Department of Transportation will conduct four public information sessions to present information and gather input on the 2017 Statewide Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan and Map Update. The purpose of the sessions is to introduce the public to the update process as well as to showcase preliminary information.
This is an opportunity for community members to obtain information and share their thoughts on what should be included in both the plan and map updates. The study team will be available to discuss actions and accomplishments since the last plan was developed in 2009 as well as how the state will move forward with a proposed bicycle network.
The informational sessions will be held on the following dates:
•Monday, November 14th at 5:30 – 7:30 PM at Elmwood Community Center, 1106 New Britain Avenue, West Hartford
•Tuesday, November 15th at 5:30 – 7:30 PM at New Haven Free Public Library - Ives Main Library, 133 Elm Street, New Haven
•Tuesday, November 29th at 5:30 – 7:30 PM at the Student Center Theatre at Eastern Connecticut State University, 83 Windham Street, Willimantic
•Wednesday, November 30th at 5:30 – 7:30 PM at Fairfield Public Library – Main Branch, 1080 Old Post Road, Fairfield
The sessions will have the same content and format. Each will begin at 5:30 PM with an informal interactive open house session. A brief presentation will begin at 6:15 PM, followed by a discussion period. CTDOT and members of the study team, Fitzgerald & Halliday, Inc. of Hartford, Connecticut, will be available at each meeting to discuss the Update and answer questions.
