Preliminary work activity for the replacement and upgrade of the Coordinated Traffic Signal System (CTSS) on Route 5/15 (Berlin Turnpike) in Berlin, Newington, and Wethersfield is scheduled to start August 1, 2021.
A reminder that as of July 1, 2021 single-use plastic bags will no longer be an option during checkout. The General Assembly enacted a plastic bag fee that went into effect on August 1, 2019 with the complete elimination of plastic bags in 2021. Some merchants may offer paper bags or reusable bags for a fee or free of charge depending on the individual stores. I encourage you to bring your reusable bags when shopping.
Starting today, July 1st, all children—plus one accompanying adult--will receive free admission to over 90 museums across Connecticut. This program will be offered through September 6th to all Connecticut children, ages 18 and under.
Thrilled to see new businesses thriving in Wethersfield. It is a good sign that much brighter days are ahead. The Charles is a wonderful addition to our community. Bryce and his staff were able to open a beautiful restaurant during the pandemic that serves delicious food and drinks.
