The Connecticut Department of Transportation (Department) will conduct a Joint Public Hearing and Public Scoping Meeting for a state project that involves the reconstruction of Atlantic Street in the City of Stamford and the replacement of the existing Metro-North Railroad (MNRR) Bridge over Atlantic Street.
The hearing will be held on Tuesday, November 19, 2013 at 7 p.m. in the Stamford Government Center, Cafeteria Room, 888 Washington Boulevard, Stamford.
The purpose of this project is to improve the horizontal and vertical geometry for Atlantic Street at the bridge, to increase the roadway capacity by providing additional travel lanes on Atlantic Street, and to improve pedestrian circulation in the vicinity of the Transportation Center. It was also determined that the project should include provisions for an additional track for the railroad, as well as a platform to service this track. The resulting layout accommodates these needs.
Preliminary plans will be available for public review starting on November 12, 2013 at the Stamford Engineering Department, located at Stamford Government Center. Department personnel will be available during the hearing to discuss this project. More detailed information is available at the Department’s Office of Engineering, 2800 Berlin Turnpike, Newington, Connecticut, during office hours, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., excluding holidays. Anyone wishing to review the plans may contact Mr. Robert Brown at (860) 594-3207 or firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment.
