Stamford undergoes intersection improvements

STAMFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — The city of Stamford is working with the Connecticut Department of Transportation Police on making changes to a plan regarding intersection improvements at Atlantic Street and Henry Street. The plan was created to redesign parking as curbside parking within the vicinity.

In a meeting that was held in August of 2013, the excess property was originally planned to accommodate seven parking spaces at 740 Henry Street. The design was then refined and it was determined that it could only accommodate four parking spots. In a recent revision of the design, it was determined that due to the extremely close proximity of the driveway to the parking area in relation to the intersection on Atlantic Street that off-street parking would be eliminated. Curbside parking will be provided within the vicinity of 740 Henry Street in order to accommodate the removal of these spaces.

The revised design plans are available to the public at the Traffic Engineering Office in the City of Stamford located on the 7th Floor at 888 Washington Boulevard between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
