‘Utterly horrific’ and a ‘dangerous situation’: Why both new Norwalk High options face opposition

esidents on King Street say the proposed bus entrance for the new Norwalk High School will exacerbate traffic issues in the neighborhood, while some parents warn of health concerns associated with the district’s other construction option. In the “option B” plan, an entrance off King Street would be used for bus transportation as well as some staff parking. Option B would place the new school building where the high school football field and tennis courts are currently located on the south side of the property. The estimated $193 million project for a 330,000-square-foot building will be completed in two phases spanning about 50 months. The estimated cost of option A is $191 million for a 347,000-square-foot building. The estimated construction timeline is estimated at 55 months, spanning between May 2023 and December 2027. More than half of the new school would be built on the current footprint.
