Keep the Old Canal Way Traffic Light - Weatogue, CT
Earlier this year, and unbeknownst to the residents of Old Canal Way, Weatogue, CT, the Office of State Traffic Commission authorized relocation of the traffic light on Old Canal Way to the housing development currently under construction further north on Hopmeadow Street. This impacts 100 apartments and 32 individual houses many of which contain families with children.
The removal of the traffic light would create a high danger intersection with no traffic light/warning to slow traffic where drivers are consistently driving at speeds of 45+ miles per hour. In addition both south and north directions have blind curves that make getting out from Old Canal Way an extremely dangerous feat.
We are petitioning to have the State Traffic Commission reverse their decision.
