Judy Gott, Executive Director

For Immediate Release March 12, 2008

PRESS RELEASE – April 2 Public Information Meeting for Route 10 Corridor Study
The South Central Regional Council of Governments (SCRCOG) is currently completing a study to identify and assess transportation system needs and deficiencies in the Route 10 corridor between I-95 Interchange 45 in the City of New Haven and Skiff Street in the Town of Hamden. This area includes sections of Ella T. Grasso Boulevard, Whalley Avenue, Fitch Street, Arch Street, and Dixwell Avenue.

An important component of the study process is public outreach to the local community of residents, business people, and commuters who are concerned about transportation and its effect on the livability or quality of life of neighborhoods in and around the Route 10 study corridor. Towards this end, a public information meeting has been scheduled for Wednesday, April 2, 2008 at 7:00 p.m. in the Beecher School gymnasium located at 100 Jewell Street, New Haven. The public information meeting will provide interested citizens an opportunity to learn about the study purpose and initial study findings, and will allow them to provide input to SCRCOG staff and our technical consultant, Clough Harbour & Associates LLP.

In general, the purpose of the Route 10 Corridor Study is to identify and address transportation needs in the corridor relative to safety; traffic operations; pedestrian and bicycle facilities; and transit services and amenities. The study will also investigate opportunities to apply Smart Growth strategies in the corridor and will coordinate transportation system recommendations with municipal land use and development plans.
