Here’s what’s in Westport’s $11.7M Post Road improvement project

Some much-needed help is on the way though, in the form of an $11.7 million project that will improve various intersections along the busy corridor. The project aims to make the road — which averages about 24,000 cars a day — safer and more efficient, which in turn will help local businesses and make them more accessible, according to Haskell’s office. Josh Morgan, a DOT spokesman, said the safety project has been in planning and design for several years. The State Bond Commission approved the $11.7 million for the project on March 30. Of that amount, 80 percent will be covered by federal funding and 20 percent will be covered by the state. Morgan said it’s expected to go out to bid this summer and awarded in the fall. Work will continue in three phases, to be completed in 2025.
