MERRITT PARKWAY IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS


{Merritt Parkway}

Since 1938 the Merritt Parkway has served as one of Connecticut’s defining roadways. Traversing nine towns from Greenwich to Stratford, this 37.5 mile parkway is rich in both natural scenery and distinguished architecture.  There has been a recent initiative by CTDOT in conjunction with activist organizations and stakeholders to rehabilitate the Merritt Parkway and sustain its unique aesthetic appeal throughout the transformation to a contemporary roadway.
