Connecticut state Project 0173-0510 will upgrade the traffic control signal equipment, and pedestrian control equipment, and features at the intersection of Route 106, at Wolf Pit Road, Horseshoe Road, and Range Road in the Town of Wilton, according to a public notice from the town.

The work will meet the latest Federal Guidelines.

It should be noted that the intersection abuts Horseshoe Park in Wilton.

However, impacts to the park will be minimal (de minimis) in nature as the aforementioned upgrades at the intersection will be constructed in close proximity to the existing traffic control signal appurtenances.

An easement is required from the Town for park property, which will encompass only the area necessary for sidewalk ramp reconstruction, and the installation of traffic control pedestrian signal equipment.

The activities will not adversely affect any of the features of the park. The impacts to the park will be limited to only the ground disturbance necessary for installing traffic signal equipment, and constructing sidewalk ramps in proximity to the intersection.

It is anticipated that Horseshoe Park will remain open during the period of reconstruction.

Residents, business owners, and other interested individuals may contact the Project Manager, Mr. Gregory R. Palmer at 860-594-2748, or via e-mail at gregory.palmer@ct.gov with any questions, comments, or concerns by Dec. 30, 2021.

A period of at least two week must be provided for the members of the public to respond.

Horseshoe Park is located at Horseshoe Road, at Wolfpit Road, in Wilton.
