All Woodbridge residents and businesspeople are invited to a meeting with the state Department of Transportation on December 16 to discuss the revised plan for Exit 59 off Route 15. The project will address safety and traffic flow issues on and around Exit 59 leading both into Woodbridge and into New Haven. “I am optimistic about the DOT’s new plan, and hope many Woodbridge residents can attend the meeting so that the state understands the importance of this project to Woodbridge and Woodbridge’s business district,” said First Selectman Ellen Scalettar.
The meeting will take place on December 16 at 7 p.m. at Mauro Sheridan School, 191 Fountain Street in the Westville section of New Haven. The City of New Haven and the Town of Woodbridge are working together to push the project to completion sooner rather than later. Originally, the DOT told the Town that the entire project could take 30 years. Since the last public meeting on the topic, held in May in Woodbridge, the DOT has revised its plans and shortened the project timeline.
