DANBURY, Conn. -- The Connecticut Department of Transportation's Office of Engineering is developing plans to replace the roadway lighting systems on Route 7 in Danbury and Brookfield, and I-84 in Danbury and Bethel.

The project involves the replacement of the existing light poles, light pole foundations, high pressure sodium type light fixtures, underground circuitry and electric service cabinets with new light poles, light pole foundations, light emitting diode type light fixtures, underground circuitry and electric service cabinets.

The purpose of this project is to improve the operation and reduce the maintenance requirements of the roadway lighting systems, according to a DOT announcement.

The community is invited to share their concerns with the department to assist in the project's development. If there is adequate interest, an informational meeting will be conducted.

At this time, it is not anticipated that a formal public hearing will be necessary, said the release.

The present schedule indicates that final design plans will be available in October. The project will be undertaken with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds, according to the release.
