April 6, 2023 0 By JohnValbyNation

FAIRFIELD, CT — Construction on the long-anticipated Four Corners improvement project at the intersection of Stratfield and Fairfield Woods roads in Fairfield is set to begin on Monday, according to officials.

Among other elements, the $1.9 million project calls for new sidewalks, bike lanes, new crosswalks and road bump-outs to help improve the flow of traffic. Additionally, there will also be plantings and beautification components.

The Stratfield Village Association, a 501 (c)3 non-profit neighborhood group, worked on the project for years, and helped to raise more than $1 million toward the initiative.

“The flow of traffic will be maintained during construction,” McCusker told Patch.

A ceremonial groundbreaking event was held on Wednesday, attended by First Selectwoman Brenda Kupchick, state Sen. Tony Hwang, state Rep. McCarthy Vahey and members of the association.

“This is very exciting,” Kupchick said. “The association did a tremendous job in helping to move this project forward.”

Hwang, who is a ranking member of the state Senate’s Transportation Committee, said that the project could be a model for similar initiatives around Connecticut.

“It’s important for us to support these types of initiatives that combine pedestrian, biking and vehicle safety elements,” he said.

McCarthy Vahey said that in addition to the $1.9 million, another $2 million in state bonding funds has been secured for future transportation projects throughout the area.
