Funding for Stratford

February 16, 2018

The State Bond Commission approved a $1.5 million to help alleviate traffic congestion and improve safety near the entrance of Sikorsky Aircraft.

I want to highlight the collaboration with my colleague, Rep. Ben McGorty and Mayor Laura Hoydick to secure this funding for Stratford.

This is an investment in traffic safety and economic development. The status quo isn’t working – there is significant traffic backup stretching onto the Merritt Parkway during the morning and afternoon rush hours.

The grant will fund intersection improvements and new traffic signalization at Oronoque Lane in conjunction with Sikorsky Aircraft’s internal road and entrance improvements to alleviate traffic congestion and improve safety in the Route 110 corridor.
