$6.5 million in State Funds Come through for Glenville Corridor Improvements

On Friday Representative Rachel Khanna (D-149) and House colleagues Representatives Steve Meskers (D-150) and Hector Arzeno (D-151) announced $6.5 million in state funds had been secured to undertake the long-awaited traffic and pedestrian safety improvements in the Glenville Corridor.

Pending the final grant application process with the CT Department of Transportation, we expect the town will be able to move forward on this project.

The Greenwich State House delegation thanked Leslie Moriarty for spearheading an effort at the Greenwich Board of Estimate and Taxation (BET) to appropriate funds into the 2025 budget to move the project forward. They also saluted Jim Michel, Deputy Commissioner of Greenwich DPW for his efforts on the vital project.

“Residents of Glenville have waited long enough for traffic and safety improvements in their neighborhood,” State Representative Khanna said in a release on Friday. “I am committed to ensuring that the residents of Glenville have streets that are safe for pedestrians and drivers alike. This is a perfect example of what a unified delegation in Hartford can bring home for our town.”

Representative Arzeno said, “We are proud to have worked with Representative Khanna on this project, and we know that the residents of her District and the whole Town of Greenwich will benefit from these improvements to the Glenville corridor.”
