A summary of the project complimented with maps, graphics, links, and raw data.

What was the purpose of the Route 110 Planning Study?
Severe traffic congestion and extensive backups are typical occurrences on Route 110, from Main Street to Warner Hill Road in Stratford, CT. The Route 110 Planning Study identified the improvements necessary to address these conditions.
What was the geography of the study area?
The study area consisted of Route 110 from Main Street (Putney, mile marker 3.10) to Warner Hill Road (mile marker 4.04). This section of Route 110 includes intersections with the northbound and southbound ramps of the Merritt Parkway, the main and northern access driveways to the Sikorsky Aircraft plant, a small shopping center and condominium complex (via Ryder’s Lane) and Oronoque Lane.

Who was involved in the Planning Study?

Two committees, a Technical Advisory Committee and a Community Advisory Committee were formed to provide guidance on the direction of the study. The Technical Advisory Committee was made up of members of the Town’s Planning and Zoning Commissions, the Town’s Economic Development, Engineering, Planning and Conservation staff and representatives of Greater Bridgeport Transit and the Connecticut Department of Transportation. The Community Advisory Committee was made up of local businesses and residents, a Town Council member, a representative of a bicycling organization and members of the Technical Advisory Committee.

How was the Planning Study being paid for?
The Federal Highway Administration’s Surface Transportation Program provided 80% of the funding for the study.  The Town of Stratford provided the balance, per the federal requirements of the program.
