April 17, 2017—Crosswalk improvements are coming to Route 111 at the Old Mine Park/Pequonnock River Trail crossing as part of an on-going effort to improve safety in the area. The Town of Trumbull is in the final stages of coordination with the State Department of Transportation to add highly visible pavement markings to the north and south lanes approaching the crossing. The existing flashing lights will be replaced with rapid flashing lights. Plans are expected be submitted to the DOT for final review within two weeks.
The crosswalk improvements are part of a larger effort to examine traffic volume and safety issues along the Route 111 and Route 25 corridor. A study is underway to examine the area and to obtain wellinformed concepts for potential improvements to Routes 111 and 25. In all, 27 intersections are being examined.
“It is important that traffic along the Route 111 and 25 corridor be analyzed as a whole and not individually in order to make the best decisions to improve traffic flow and safety in the area” state Mark Block, District 3 Representative to the Trumbull Town Council.
The study is a joint effort between Trumbull, Monroe, MetroCog and the State of Connecticut. Tighe and Bond is firm conducting the study. A public meeting is scheduled for April 27, 2017 at 6:00 pm at the Monroe Elementary School.
