Public Informational Meeting Regarding Major Intersection Improvements on Route 10/202 at Routes 20/189 in Granby
The Connecticut Department of Transportation (Department) will conduct a public informational meeting concerning proposed major Intersection Improvements on Route 10/US 202 (Salmon Brook Street) at Route 20/189 (North Granby Road/East Granby Road) and at Route 189 (Hartford Avenue) on Wednesday, March 16, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. at the Granby Senior Center, 15 North Granby Road, Granby, Connecticut.
The project is identified as State Project No. 55-TMP1.
The purpose of the proposed project is to reduce delays and queue lengths during peak travel periods within Granby center by widening Salmon Brook Street, North Granby Road/East Granby Road and Hartford Avenue for additional auxiliary lanes. In addition, operational deficiencies will be addressed by a minor realignment of North Granby Road to improve turning capabilities for eastbound left-turning and through vehicles. This proposed project will also improve pedestrian accommodations by closing gaps in the existing sidewalk system and providing new sidewalks along the south side of East Granby Road to Bank Street.
Right-of-way impacts associated with these improvements are anticipated to include nine (9) partial property acquisitions.
