The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) will conduct a Public Information Meeting concerning proposed roadway construction on Route 42 (North Brooksvale Road) and King Road on Tuesday, October 23, 2012 at the Cheshire Town Hall, Council Chambers, 84 South Main Street, Cheshire, Connecticut.

The project consists of providing drainage and safety improvements on Route 42 at King Road. The proposed work includes the installation of a new drainage system on Route 42 that will connect to the existing drainage network on King Road. Approximately, 1,000 feet of the existing drainage network on King Road will be upgraded in order to facilitate a high volume of drainage run-off. The work also includes full depth reconstruction at the curve to address safety and geometric improvements on Route 42 by improving the superelevation rate of the sharp horizontal curve at King Road. In addition, the existing traffic arrow signs at the curve on Route 42 will be replaced with chevron signs to warn the motorists of the change in roadway direction.
Construction is anticipated to start in the summer of 2013, based on the availability of funding. The construction cost for this project is approximately $1.8 million.
