Project No. 171-437:  Pedestrian Signing on Locally-Owned Roads
Schedule: Spring/Summer 2019

NEWINGTON, Conn – Transportation Commissioner James P. Redeker, announced today that the Connecticut Department of Transportation (Department) is planning to systemically replace existing pedestrian signing and associated subplates with new retro-reflective warning signs with post delineators at all unsignalized and midblock marked crosswalks as well as repaint the crosswalks on local roads throughout District 1. These upgrades will be in compliance with national standards and should help to improve both visibility and conspicuity of existing marked crosswalks.

“It is the Department’s policy to keep persons informed and involved when such projects are undertaken,” said Commissioner Redeker. “It is important that the community share its concerns with us to assist in the project’s development. If there is adequate interest, an informational meeting will be conducted. At this time, it is not anticipated that a formal public hearing will be necessary.”
