The Connecticut Department of Transportation
(Department) will conduct a Public Landscape Workshop concerning the proposed Route
7/15 Interchange on Monday, September 17, 2018 at the Norwalk Inn, 99 East
Avenue, Norwalk, CT. The meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. and will include a
presentation followed by an interactive discussion pertaining to the visual and
physical landscape elements within the project corridor.
The project is identified as State Project
The proposed project is located in the northern portion of the city
of Norwalk and encompasses the interchange of Route 15 (Merritt Parkway) and
Route 7; the interchange of the Merritt Parkway with Main Avenue; Main Avenue
(SR 719); and Glover Avenue/Creeping Hemlock Drive in the vicinity of Main
Avenue. The project area extends along
the Merritt Parkway from approximately 0.5 miles west of Route 7 to
approximately 0.5 miles east of Main Avenue and along Route 7 from
approximately 0.5 miles south of the Merritt Parkway to approximately 0.5 miles
north of the Merritt Parkway.
The purpose of the project is to improve
system linkage between Route 7 and the Merritt Parkway at Interchange No. 39;
improve the mobility for all users at the Merritt Parkway’s Main Avenue and
Route 7 Interchanges (No. 39 & No. 40); and improve safety in the vicinity
of these interchanges.
