Everyone has an opinion — or 3 — on what to do with the William Cribari (aka Bridge Street) Bridge.
But the only ones that matter right now are those that are submitted to the Connecticut Department of Transportation. The deadline is Friday, July 1.
Planning and Zoning Committee chair/state representative candidate Catherine Walsh writes:
At Thursday’s P&Z meeting, we received a formal presentation by the Westport Historic District Commission asking for our support of their study of the significance of the bridge. As we have done in the past, we elected to support their findings, and will be writing a letter of support.
We will also draft our own letter to the DOT which will highlight other areas of concern to the P&Z regarding traffic, water, etc.
July 1 is the deadline for written testimony to be submitted into the public record. Comments concerning historic preservation, traffic increase into Saugatuck, semi trucks using Greens Farms Road as an I-95 bypass and water are all important, and should be the focus of communications with DOT.
