The Town would like to inform its citizens of a planned traffic hindrance in the Westminster/Avon area beginning February 9.
The westbound lane on Avon Road closest to the sidewalk will be temporarily closed to provide a safe access to The Easton redevelopment work site for the duration of the work. The project is expected to be completed by spring 2023. A reconfiguration of the remaining lanes is required to maintain traffic access in each direction on Avon Road.
Flagmen will be present at the work site to ensure the safety of pedestrians and vehicle traffic.
In addition, there will be temporary signage and detour lane markings to inform pedestrians and motorists of how to proceed around the work. Please respect all temporary traffic signs.
Pedestrians: The sidewalks in front of the construction site will not be accessible during the work. Please use the crosswalks on the west and south sides of the intersection to cross the street safely. Temporary detour signs will clearly mark the way.
Bus service: The bus stop at the northeast corner of Avon Road has been moved in front of 8031 Avon Road.
It is best to plan your route accordingly and allow for extra travel time. We apologize for any inconvenience this work may cause and thank you for your understanding.
