MEDIA RELEASE - CT DOT -  Enhanced warning signs


MEDIA RELEASE 

FOR RELEASE: UPON RECEIPT 

Enhancement of regulatory and warning signs on unsignalized state road intersections in various Connecticut Towns in District 2

The Connecticut Department of Transportation (Department) is developing plans for the systemic application of multiple low-cost proven safety countermeasures at single-lane, higher crash risk, stop-controlled intersections at the locations in the list below. The application of these Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) proven safety countermeasures (enhanced signing and pavement markings) increases driver awareness and recognition of the intersections and potential conflicts

There are approximately 40 locations that have been screened and identified by the Department that may benefit from enhanced signing across the following 18 Municipalities in District 2: Ashford, Colchester, Columbia, Franklin, Griswold, Groton, Hampton, Killingly, Killingworth, Mansfield, New London, North Stonington, Old Lyme, Old Saybrook, Preston, Salem, Waterford, and Windham

The following unsignalized state road intersections are included

It is the Department's policy to keep the public informed and involved when such projects are undertaken. It is important that the community share its concerns with us to assist in the project's development. At this time, it is anticipated that an informational meeting or formal public hearing will not be necessary. 

The design plans for these projects are expected to be completed in December 2022
