Westporters have watched with interest as renovations begin on 1 Wilton Road.
That’s the quaint little building squatting underneath the massive Wright Street office project.
Today it’s one of the many frustrating reasons for back-ups at the Post Road West/Riverside Avenue intersection. Plans to move the building to create a turning lane have been rejected (perhaps to rise again, in the future).
Once upon a time, that section of town was less chaotic. Back in the day, a man could stroll down the middle of State Street — past a still-familiar streetscape that includes National Hall (now The ‘Port restaurant).
But I’m sure turn-of-the-20th-century Westporters found plenty to complain about.
Look at that mud! Those rocks, and the wagon ruts!
And I know some folks thought that watering trough didn’t need to be smack in the center of the road.
