Glenville Road is a collector road connecting road users from Central Greenwich to the Glenville business district which further provides access to the Merritt Parkway, King Street and I-684. The intersections of Brookside Drive and Valley Drive with Glenville Road have been noted by residents as being dangerous, difficult to maneuver and congested at times. In 2019, the Town initiated a capital project to review the area and study conceptual designs for these intersections.
Earlier work included a topographic survey of the area and discussions with neighboring property owners to understand their concerns with the existing intersections and thoughts on a potential change in intersection alignment or type.
Conceptual design alternatives are being developed by consulting engineers, Stantec Inc.
The location of these intersections is adjacent to the Horseneck Brook floodway and other inland wetlands. The proximity of these needs to be considered during the development of roadway improvements in the area. This project is being coordinated with adjacent Flood and Erosion Control Board projects and the anticipated project timeline will take into account both projects.
Any roadway improvements need to be closely coordinated with the adjacent Eagle Hill School to understand how arrival and dismissal traffic may be improved.
Construction for this project is anticipated to begin in 2022. Temporary traffic detours may be required during construction. Local driveway access will need to be maintained. Additional details will be provided when available.
The Town has applied for LOTCIP (Local Transportation Capital Improvement Program) grant funding for 100% of construction costs.
A virtual public information webinar took place on April 30, 2020. A PDF of the presentation can by found by clicking HERE.
The conceptual design alternative that will be advanced into preliminary and final design will be chosen based on multiple factors including cost, public input, impacts, and evaluation of the traffic and safety improvements.
