WESTPORT, Conn. -- The town of Westport will remove "No Turn on Red" signs from two intersections after receiving preliminary approval from the state.
The signs will be removed from the intersection where Main Street meets Myrtle Avenue and Kings Highway North, as well as the intersection where Main Street meets Avery Place and Parker Harding Plaza. The Board of Selectmen's request to eliminate the signs at the town-owned intersections has received preliminary approval by the office of the State Traffic Administration.
That state agency, which has the authority and responsibility to review these requests, has indicated that it will grant permission for the town to eliminate those signs once appropriate paperwork has been received. The signs will be removed by the Public Works Department staff as soon as final approval is granted.
“I appreciate the State Traffic Administration’s response to our request to eliminate those signs," said First Selectman Jim Marpe. "It is anticipated that their removal will aid in the flow of traffic and help alleviate some of the congestion currently experienced at those intersections.”
