Western Gateway Weekly Update 4 - September 1, 2022

Mary Ricker said almost 2 years ago:

Construction is officially underway for the City of Shelton's Western Gateway project. Please share this information with your neighbors and encourage them to sign up to receive email updates.

Upcoming Work and Construction

Crews are now hard at work installing water services throughout the project area. This work will continue for the next several weeks. Due to this work, drivers will begin to experience 15-20 minute delays when traveling through the work zone. We have updated electronic readerboards at the site to inform drivers of the delays.

Within the next few weeks, crews will be trimming a couple of maple trees located east of 12th Street. 

What to Expect During Construction

Drivers traveling through the project site will begin to experience 15-20 minute delays when traveling through the work zone this week. 

Now that the Shelton School District is back in session, Shelton Police will be conducting some emphasis patrols along Franklin Street to monitor traffic. 

Note: The project contractor will not be working on Monday, September 5 in observance of Labor Day.

Heavy congestion is expected while crews and equipment are working. Working hours will typically be 8-hour windows between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays. Please be patient with crews as they work to keep delays to a minimum during this project.

Driving lanes will be narrow and heavy equipment/trucks will be entering and leaving work zones. Please be alert and obey flagging personnel for your safety and others! Plan accordingly and use alternate routes when possible.

Project Updates

You can follow the City's Facebook or Twitter accounts, and we've also uploaded the progress video we shared last week to our YouTube channel. We also have a project webpage on our website - A link to this project webpage has been added to the homepage of the City's app.

We'll also continue to share weekly updates here, and you can sign up to receive an email notification when a new update is available. If you have questions or comments about the project or these updates, please email Communications Specialist Mary Ricker at [email protected].
