DOT: Grove Street To Close at Railroad Crossing for One Week Starting July 31


Starting next Friday, July 31, the railroad crossing at Grove Street will be closed to motor vehicle traffic for seven days while state officials work on it, officials say.

Cars will be detoured (see PDF below) around the Metro-North Railroad branch line crossing by way of Elm and Park Streets and Richmond Hill Road, according to a Connecticut Department of Transportation notice filed with the New Canaan Department of Public Works.

Due to curvature of the track, the state will install rubber panels instead of concrete at the Grove Street railroad crossing, DOT officials say.

The state on Thursday is notifying area businesses and residents affected by the road closure, officials say.
