Meeting set on Stratford Ave. roundabout
STRATFORD — Town officials have scheduled an informational meeting on a proposed roundabout that would be constructed at the intersection of Stratford Avenue, South Avenue and Honeyspot Road.
The meeting will take place Monday, Jan. 29, at 6:30 pm., in the Town Council Chambers of the Town Hall, 2725 Main St.
This project is in the design stage and may be recommended for construction under the State’s Local Transportation Capital Improvement Program by the Connecticut Department of Transportation. The location is near the Two Roads Brewing Co.
“The reconstruction of this intersection is a part of our long-term goal of important safety and streetscape enhancements, in cooperation with the State Department of Transportation,” said Mayor Laura Hoydick.
This project is being designed by BL Companies, a consultant for the town, and it will include reconstruction of Honeyspot Road from the I-95 ramps to Stratford Avenue, including reconstruction of the intersections of Honeyspot with Spada Boulevard, Old Honeyspot Road and South Avenue with Stratford Avenue.
This project would include realigning the intersections for better safety, a new traffic light and controls at the I-95 on-ramp at Spada Blvd, and a roundabout at Stratford Avenue. In addition, streetscape enhancements, including bicycle and pedestrian improvements, curbing, drainage, pavement and landscape improvements will be provided. These improvements will provide for better traffic flow through the area in addition to a more aesthetic streetscape.
Based upon a preliminary assessment, the construction cost will be about $3.7 million.
It is anticipated that the state DOT will provide 100 percent of the project costs up to the estimated cost of the project, while the town is paying for the design.
Written comments will be accepted until Feb 1, 2018. Deaf and hearing impaired persons wishing to attend this meeting and requiring an interpreter may make arrangements by contacting the Town at least five working days prior to the meeting.
