Frontage Rd, Delavan Ave & Ritch Ave Improvements

Project Introduction

Town of Greenwich Department of Public Works devised this project after identifying an opportunity to make this area more pedestrian and bicyclist-friendly, along with incorporating traffic calming measures. This project is part of the DPW Engineering Division’s ongoing efforts to work with the State of Connecticut’s Local Transportation Capital Improvements Program. The project includes improvements to traffic conditions by redesigning lane widths, turning movements, and updating traffic signals. 

The construction will have minimal environmental impacts. Any necessary detours will be posted during the project. Project completion is dependent on weather and any unforeseen complications. It is recommended that the public gives themselves extra time when going out in case there is a lane closure or extra traffic due to construction. 

Project Update

The majority of the project is complete and the contractor is in the process of installing the remaining final conduit for the mast arm and pedestrian poles. The contractor is in the process of installing the unfinished sidewalk section, which is scheduled to be completed the week of November 7, 2022. This work was anticipated to be completed by the end of October, however, due to supply chain issues with traffic signal equipment, the project is anticipated to be completed in the spring of 2023.
