WEST HAVEN, Feb. 22, 2023 — The state Department of Transportation is developing plans to replace traffic signal controllers and cabinets at select state-owned traffic signals in the city, along with installing communication equipment at several of the locations.
The DOT will coordinate the project with city officials during the design phase.
“It is the department’s policy to keep the public informed and involved when such projects are undertaken,” said Matthew C. Blume, the division chief of traffic engineering at the DOT’s Bureau of Engineering and Construction. “At this time, it is anticipated that an informational meeting or formal public hearing will not be necessary.”
The following West Haven intersections are included in the state project: Ocean Avenue (Route 705) at South Street; Ocean Avenue (Route 705) at Platt Court; Derby Avenue (Route 34) at Central Avenue; and Jones Hill Road (Route 162) at South Street.
Blume said the bureau should complete the design plans in June, with a tentative advertising date for construction of August.
