Senator Bob Duff announces plans to reduce traffic congestion on Route 1

This week, the Department of Transportation, Rep. Chris Perone and I unveiled plans to vastly improve traffic flow and public safety around one of the biggest vehicular choke points in the City of Norwalk: the intersection of Route 1 and Route 53, roads that are known locally as the intersection of Westport Avenue/North Avenue and East Avenue.

These improvements will result in wider lanes, better traffic flow, less vehicle idling, improved pedestrian and driver safety, and getting where you’re going quicker and safer, which are all good things.

The DOT project will also upgrade the intersection of Route 1 (Connecticut Avenue) and Stuart Avenue, which is located near Interstate 95, between Lowe’s and Toys R’ Us.

The $2.8 million DOT project at the two sites will widen pavement, curbing and sidewalks; construct drainage, retaining walls and new traffic signals; and finally mill and re-pave the streets and add new pavement striping and other painted markings.
