Duff: Norwalk Project Wins Funding for Glover Ave. Infrastructure & Safety Upgrades

Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) today announced that the State Bond Commission has approved $ 7 million in funding for infrastructure upgrades and safety improvements for the Glover Ave/Main Avenue intersection. This area of Norwalk is home to a diverse collection of businesses including, Diageo, Factset Research Systems, Datto, Frontier Communications, and General Electric.

“This investment will greatly improve public safety,” said Senator Duff. “With its proximity to Route 7, the Merritt Parkway and a stop on the Danbury Branch line, this project will help foster transit oriented development, economic development and job creation in this vital corridor.”

“This is great news. The Glover Avenue project is adjacent to the majority of Norwalk’s Class A Office space and a key to the economic future of Norwalk and the State of Connecticut. This investment illustrates the ongoing cooperation between our city and the State of Connecticut to improve our local infrastructure and to bring necessary development to our community,” said Mayor Harry Rilling. “I want to thank Senator Duff and the Governor for pursuing this funding and getting the job done.”

The City of Norwalk has included a line of $1 million in its capital budget over the next four years, anticipating a $4 million total investment on the City’s behalf.
