East Norwalk Association Library – Parking Lot and Sidewalk Construction

TTD has contracted to have the entire Library property sidewalk rebuilt and the parking lot reconfigured including striping. Work will begin in a few weeks.

The new traffic flow will be one way in from the further lot and exit only from the near lot. Appropriate “Enter” and “Do Not Enter” signage is included.

You can download a PDF of the reconfiguration as designed by the contractor. This plan had to pass State approval prior to its start since Van Zant Street is a State Road.

There may be some inconvenience to Library patrons during construction however, the work is expected to be completed as quickly as possible.

Additionally, work to repair and refurbish the Library front, including pillars, steps, railings, and facade will begin soon after completion of the parking lot.

Fitch Street Substation

TTD has completed the replacement of circuit switches at the Fitch Street Substation. The original switches were part of a manufacturer’s recall that was issued for low temperatures. Although it was considered “borderline” for this area, TTD took the position of better safe than sorry and moved forward with the replacement. The project took four days and was completed without any service interruption to the rate payers.
