Reducing Traffic on Route 1

VIDEO: DOT Norwalk
This week, the Department of Transportation, Rep. Chris Perone and I unveiled plans to vastly improve traffic flow and public safety around one of the biggest vehicular choke points in the City of Norwalk: the intersection of Route 1 and Route 53, roads that are known locally as the intersection of Westport Avenue/North Avenue and East Avenue.

These improvements will result in wider lanes, better traffic flow, less vehicle idling, improved pedestrian and driver safety, and getting where you're going quicker and safer, which are all good things.

The DOT project will also upgrade the intersection of Route 1 (Connecticut Avenue) and Stuart Avenue, which is located near Interstate 95, between Lowe's and Toys R' Us.

The $2.8 million DOT project at the two sites will widen pavement, curbing and sidewalks; construct drainage, retaining walls and new traffic signals; and finally mill and re-pave the streets and add new pavement striping and other painted markings.

The work began January 14 and is expected to be completed on time and within budget by Labor Day, 2018.

Dignity and Respect Aren't Fighting Words

It was 27 minutes into the governor's 30-minute long State of the State address when he delivered these few lines: "Our state has a long legacy of acceptance, compassion, and fairness."

Fairness, equality, civility, respect--all hallmarks of American democracy and Connecticut's rich history. A yet, many members of the General Assembly refused to applaud this basic tenant.

Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I was delighted to meet with students at the annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. community breakfast at West Rocks Middle School.
