The Department of Transportation (Department) is developing plans to replace LED lamps at State owned traffic signals located at approximately 500 State Road intersections in various Towns throughout Connecticut. The life expectancy of a LED lamp is approximately 8 years, so this project will proactively replace lamps in order to keep traffic signals functioning in a state of good repair. This project will also replace circular red LED lamps with red arrow LED lamp at locations that are not currently in compliance with current design requirements.
It is the Department’s policy to keep the public informed and involved when such projects are undertaken. It is important that the community share its concerns with us to assist in the project’s development. At this time, it is anticipated that an informational meeting or formal public hearing will not be necessary.
The design plans for these projects are expected to be completed in September 2019 with a tentative advertising date for construction of December 2019.
