Opportunity for Public Comment – Route 32 Corridor Study:

The Southeastern Connecticut Council of Governments, is in the process of completing a Corridor Study focused on Route 32 in New London, from the Williams Street bridge, north to Benham Road in Waterford, an area referred to as College Hill. The study includes recommendations intended to calm traffic through this area, making this route safer to travel for motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. The proposed concept plan includes a landscaped median in the middle of Route 32 and a shared-use path on both sides of the road. Two travel lanes in each direction are maintained, with left turn lanes provided at intersections and existing right turn lanes removed. Traffic calming measures are also proposed at the entrances into the study area to slow vehicle traffic, and pedestrian refuges will increase safety of Route 32 crossings. You can review the presentation materials and complete a survey at www.route32study.com to provide feedback on the proposed concept. The final report for this project, which will be informed by input received, will be available on the website later this spring. While this project has been the subject of several outreach events and public meetings, the SCCOG is interested in receiving as much input as possible on the study recommendations. Please submit any additional comments by May 12th.
