Tuesday morning Sen. Bob Duff and Mayor Harry Rilling, requested a meeting with the state Department of Transportation to clarify the road lowering and widening project at Rowayton Avenue around the Rowayton Train Station.
"There is concern from Rowayton residents about additional truck traffic with this project and I want to ensure that we are working on the residents' behalf," said Sen. Duff, in a release. "Let's get it right."
"As the new mayor, I am getting up to speed on various projects around our city and it is important that I have all of the information before making an authorization to proceed. After all, once it is done, this will be with us for generations," Mayor Rilling said in the release.
On the Norwalk Common Council agenda for Tuesday night was a resolution authorizing the mayor to enter into an agreement to proceed with the construction. Mayor Rilling worked with members of the Common Council and the item is withdrawn until more information is available.
"I want to thank Sen. Duff and Mayor Rilling for listening to the concerns of Rowayton residents, said Councilman John Igneri in the release. "Ultimately, this may move forward, so it is always helpful to have a dialogue with the state and make sure that we are doing everything possible to protect the character of Rowayton."
