Trucks on the Merritt? A Train Alongside?
Fridays discussion at Yale University about the future of the Merritt Parkway touched on a number of possibilities. Among them trucks on the roadway and a train track alongside.
According to the Connecticut Post, the occasion was the annual meeting of the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation.
Keynote speaker was Peter Szabo, director of the Merritt Parkway Conservancy, who addressed the future of the parkway.
Meanwhile, the Post reported that safety issues will take center stage when the State Department of Transportation holds informational meetings about using the breakdown lane of I-95 for traffic during rush hours. One is scheduled for Westport on April 16.
