The Connecticut Department of Transportation (Department) will be holding a Public Informational Meeting regarding the Intersection Improvements of Route 57 (Main Street) and Route 136 (Compo Road) at Clinton Avenue. The meeting will be held on Thursday, May 30, 2013, at Westport Town Hall, in the Auditorium, 110 Myrtle Avenue, Westport, Connecticut. Department personnel will be available at 7:00 p.m. to answer questions prior to formal presentation at 7:30 p.m.
The purpose of this project is to improve the safety and operation characteristics of the
intersection. The project will involve widening along the south side of Route 57 (Main Street) for approximately 1,000 feet to provide exclusive left-turn lanes in both directions. Additionally, the Compo Road leg will be widened at the intersection to provide an exclusive left-turn lane while realigning the through-lane with Clinton Avenue.
The project also involves the replacement of the twin 30-inch concrete culverts carrying Willow Brook under Compo Road with a concrete box culvert to provide a larger flow opening. The existing bituminous walkway along the north side of Route 57 (Main Street) will be upgraded to an ADA compliant sidewalk.
The present schedule indicates that the design will be completed in fall 2014, with construction anticipated to start in spring 2015, based on the availability of funding. The estimated construction cost for this project is approximately $1.5 million and it is anticipated to be undertaken with 90% Federal funds and 10% State funds.
The Public Informational Meeting is being held to offer a full opportunity for public participation and to allow open discussion of any views and comments the community may have concerning Intersection Improvements of Route 57 (Main Street) and Route 136 (Compo Road) at Clinton Avenue.
