Senator Osten Announces State Funding For Hebron And Lisbon Infrastructure Projects

Sen. Osten, Rep. Ryan Welcome State Dot Announcement On Its Plan To Re-Evaluate Norwich Roundabout Project

NORWICH – State Senator Cathy Osten (D-Sprague) and Representative Kevin Ryan (D-Norwich) said today that they welcome a state Department of Transportation decision to re-evaluate their controversial plan to install six traffic roundabouts along a mile stretch of Route 82/West Main Street in Norwich.

“Representative Ryan and I have been working with the DOT for months now on this project because we always believed, based on our discussions with local residents, that it was far too broad. So we’re thrilled that the DOT is now re-evaluating it,” Sen. Osten said.

“Norwich City Council members asked Senator Osten and I to do what we could to communicate the concerns of the council and city residents to the DOT, and we did that. Now the project is being re-evaluated. That’s a big win for Norwich and for local businesses,” Rep. Ryan said.
