Planners push for public input on Route 25, Route 111 corridors
Traffic, parking, economic development, zoning, bicycle and pedestrian usage, and transit facilities — these are some of the topics that planners from Monroe and Trumbull would like to get feedback on from the public during an Engineering and Planning Study for Routes 25 and 111.
The public hearing is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. in the Monroe Elementary School cafe on Wednesday, April 20.
Rob Librandi, Trumbull's land use planner, will be in attendance along with Will Agresta, who serves as the planning and zoning administrator for Trumbull.
The purpose of the study is to identify strategies to improve traffic operations along the Route 25 and Route 111 corridors, especially during the peak commuting hours.
According to a press release, the study will address existing needs and deficiencies; current traffic operations and congestion; future traffic growth and development and additional trip generation; and safety issues and remedial measures.
Bicycle accommodations, as well as pedestrian and transit usage, will be also discussed.
While traffic will be the main focus, the release said the planners will analyze the mitigation impacts to environmental resources and the implementation and sustainable improvements to the transportation system.
The State of Connecticut is funding the study and MetroCOG is serving as the project manager for the study.
