The Connecticut Department of Transportation (ConnDOT) is developing plans to replace the signs and their support structures on a 38.3-mile stretch of the Merritt Parkway from the Connecticut/New York border in Greenwich to the Stratford/Milford town line.
“This project is necessary because of the age, condition and structural integrity of these signs and their support systems — some of which have little remaining reflectivity and are literally falling apart after 20 years along the roadway,” said CTDOT Commissioner James P. Redeker. He continued, “This creates a safety issue, not to mention an inconvenience and distraction for motorists. As part of our ongoing asset management program, we are constantly evaluating the condition of all of our highways, bridges and ancillary structures. This project is a direct result of those efforts.”
