This good-news email was just sent to railroad parking lot pass holders, from Police Chief Foti Koskinas:
After additional communication with commuters and users of Saugatuck train station parking lot #1, the Railroad Division of the Westport Police Department requested that the engineers responsible for the project reconsider the single driveway entrance and exit plan.
The proposed modifications will meet safety requirements, while reducing potential exit wait times during periods of high traffic flow.
The resulting modifications allow for 2 entrance/exit driveways, and the addition of a right-hand turn lane to the originally proposed entrance/exit driveway.
The email says that the changes will result in a loss of 7 spaces. Seems like a small price to pay for a common-sense change. Tomorrow night (Tuesday, June 7, 7:30 p.m., Town Hall auditorium), the RTM considers a $1.5 million appropriation request for the plan.
