STAMFORD, Conn. — Stamford has received $1.3 million from the state Bond Commission for road and infrastructure improvements in the South End, a news release said.
The money will be used to realign the eastbound approach of Henry Street to Atlantic Street with the westbound approach, the release said. A new traffic signal will also be placed there, the release said.
“This is great news for residents and all motorists who use this important artery,” Rep. Gerald Fox III, D-146, said in the release.
“As Stamford continues to grow, it's clear that we need a continuing commitment from the state to invest in and improve our infrastructure,” State Sen. Carlo Leone, D-27, said in the release.
The funding is part of the state’s Department of Transportation’s “Fix-It-First” program, which targets roads and bridges in need of repair, the release said. Both Fox and Leone requested the money on behalf of the city.
