Proposed Project: New Sidewalks, Curb Ramps, Pedestrian Crossing Beacons in Highland Ave./Roton Middle School Area

Norwalk, CT - The City of Norwalk has a proposed project for Roton Middle School and Highland Avenue. The project consists of constructing new ADA compliant sidewalks and curb ramps on Highland Avenue from Witch Lane to Knollwood Road, installing pedestrian crossing beacons on Highland Avenue at Roton Middle School and at Knollwood Road, relocating the existing crosswalk on Highland Avenue from just south of the intersection of Rowayton Woods to Knollwood Road, the installation of a new walkway and modifications to existing walkway at the rear of Roton Middle School and changes to the traffic pattern inside the school property to create a safer traffic flow.

This project, if supported by the community and City officials, will be designed by the City and recommended for construction under the Surface Transportation Program administered by the Connecticut Department of Transportation.

Based upon preliminary assessment, the construction cost will be approximately $400,000. It is anticipated that the Federal Highway Administration will provide 100% of the cost.

It is the City's and the State's policy to keep persons informed and involved when such projects are undertaken. It is important that the community share its concerns with us to assist in the project's development. The City will conduct an informational meeting on Wednesday, March 26, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. at the Roton Middle School, 201 Highland Avenue, Norwalk, CT. Deaf and hearing impaired persons wishing to attend this meeting and requiring an interpreter may make arrangements by contacting the City at least five (5) working days prior to the meeting.
