Installations and Revisions of Traffic Control Signals in Various Connecticut Towns
 

The Department of Transportation (Department) is developing plans to install new traffic control signal equipment to meet current Department standards at 11 locations in the cities/towns of Berlin, East Windsor, Manchester, New Britain, Newington, Southington, South Windsor, Vernon, West Hartford, Wethersfield, and Windsor Locks. At locations where applicable, pedestrian control features (countdown pedestrian indications, accessible pushbuttons, upgraded sidewalk ramps, and crosswalks) will be upgraded in an effort to improve accessibility and pedestrian safety. The following intersections are included:

It is the Department’s policy to keep the public informed and involved when such projects are undertaken.  It is important that the community share its concerns with us to assist in the project’s development.  At this time, it is anticipated that an informational meeting or formal public hearing will not be necessary.
 
The design plans for these projects are expected to be completed in July 2020 with a tentative advertising date for construction of  September 2020.
