  • Church Hill Road Intersection Realignment Delayed One Year

    The planned start of construction to create a signalized four-way intersection of Church Hill Road (US Route 6), Commerce Road, and Edmond Road has been delayed, with the state Department of Transportation (DOT) project now expected to start in April 2017, one year later than was earlier planned.

  • Renovation Project Announced: Glen Road ‘Silver Bridge’ To Be Silver Again

    What locally has long been known as “The Silver Bridge” will regain its argentine luster after the state completes an estimated $5 million renovation project intended to physically rehabilitate the steel-truss span at Glen Road, which crosses the Lake Zoar section of the Housatonic River, linking Sandy Hook to Southbury.

    A state Department of Transportation (DOT) spokesman said this week that the two-lane, 308-foot-long bridge, which currently is painted brown, will be repainted a silvery color, based on local requests.
