The town missed a chance to move the little building at 1 Wilton Road — the former yarn shop at the Post Road West corner. A land swap with David Waldman’s Save the Children development project diagonally across the street could have enabled a turning lane, helping alleviate some of the traffic at what’s been called the state’s worst intersection.
But now there’s a demolition sign posted on the southwest corner. That’s the Westport Aquarium building, at 2 Riverside Avenue.
It’s probably making way for a new structure — one that would (of course) draw more traffic.
Maybe though, there’s still a way to make this a turning lane — or at least somehow reconfigure that traffic-choked intersection.
Hey — a guy can dream, right?
