The Connecticut Department of Transportation is announcing that a traffic shift for stage construction will occur on Route 35 (Danbury Rd.) between the Recreation Center Drive and the southerly Fox Hill Condominium entrance in Ridgefield on or about August 9, 2017, weather permitting.
The project consists of constructing a temporary roadway and bridge to maintain traffic in both directions.

There will also be the installation of storm water collection and drainage systems.
