On Saturday, September 11, 2021, Wilton CERT will be supporting the CT United Ride, Connecticut’s largest annual 9/11 tribute, as thousands of motorcycles pass through the Town of Wilton to pay tribute to the 20th anniversary of 9/11.
The 9/11 Ride is always a spectacular event. The motorcycles in the parade will be riding from Sherwood Island State Park and head through Westport, Wilton, Redding and other towns back up to Bridgeport.
Here in Wilton, CERT and the Wilton Police block off roadways over a six-mile path of Route 33 and Route 7, as the group proceeds through the area, to allow the parade to continue without
stopping. In years past we have had the assistance of approximately 60 CERTs for this exciting activation - many of them from out of town.
The motorcade is expected to enter the Town of Wilton at approximately 11:45 am. It is anticipated that the motorcade will last for approximately 45 minutes, leaving the Town of Wilton at approximately 12:30 pm.
During this time access to sections of Route 33 (Westport Road) and Route 7 (Danbury Road) will be restricted. Specifically, adjacent streets and driveways on the East side of Route 7, north of the Route 7 and Westport Road intersection, will not be able to enter Route 7.
In addition, adjacent streets on the West side of Route 7 will be restricted to entering Route 7 in a southbound direction only. Please plan your travel arrangements accordingly, and step outside to watch and give your support to the riders in this event.https://www.facebook.com/wiltoncert/
