Greenwich DPW Announce Traffic Pattern Alteration, Road Closure by Rte 1 & Sherwood

The Town of Greenwich, Department of Public Works, Engineering Division is managing construction to improve the drainage system in the downtown area, currently at the intersection of Route 1 and Sherwood Place. This project involves the installation of a storm drain and requires a traffic pattern alteration and road closure at the intersection of Route 1 and Sherwood Place in order for this work to be completed.

The proposed traffic pattern alteration and construction is to commence on

Tuesday, August 1st and is estimated to last approximately 1 month, dependent on the weather and any unforeseen issues.

The first phase of the work will include a full closure of the intersection of Route 1 and Sherwood Place for approximately one month. During this 24/7 traffic pattern, Route 1 will be narrowed to one lane in each direction through the use of traffic drums and concrete barriers. Access to all local businesses and residents will be maintained. We recommend motorists take extra time when traveling the area and seek alternate routes whenever possible.

Access to Sherwood Place from Route 1 will be temporarily eliminated during this traffic pattern.

The established detour route to access the properties on Sherwood Place is to utilize Church Street to William Street to Sherwood Place.

Parking along Route 1 between Greenwich Avenue and Milbank Avenue will be significantly impacted due to the presence of this traffic pattern. Prior to working in a specific area, on street parking will be posted with “NO PARKING” signs. Please take notice of the posted signs in the Town’s right-of-way. Any vehicles that are parked in the restricted stalls will be towed. It is the Town’s policy to keep persons informed and involved when such projects are undertaken. The Engineering Division of the Department of Public Works along with CDM Smith Inc. will be working together to make sure you are informed and aware of what is happening.

Anyone interested in obtaining further information can contact Jim Michel, P.E., Deputy Commissioner, at (203) 622- 7767, or via email at [email protected] Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
