Main Street Sidewalk Extension to Kiwanis Will Be Completed in Two Weeks


The widely anticipated sidewalk extension from the bottom of Main Street to Kiwanis Park should be wrapped up in another two weeks, officials say.

Deering Construction has installed half of the granite curb and about one quarter of the sidewalk itself is in, Department of Public Works Assistant Directory Tiger Mann said Tuesday at a special meeting of the Board of Selectmen. The total project cost is about $176,000.

“That should take another two weeks to finish that, and they will mill and pave that road and put that [project] to bed,” Mann said at the meeting, held in a conference room at the New Canaan Police Department.

During the meeting, First Selectman Rob Mallozzi and Selectman Beth Jones approved about $1 million for phase three of the annual local roads paving project, the first two pieces coming in at $900,000 and $422,00, respectively.

This piece will cover the following roads:

  • Parish Road South
  • Parish Road North
  • Parish Lane
  • Pequot Lane
  • Turtleback Road
  • Turtleback Lane East
  • Turtleback Lane West
  • Apple Tree Lane
  • Rilling Ridge Road

Parish, which runs off of Frogtown Road, has been on hold for a couple of years, Mann said, since Yankee Gas began talking about coming into New Canaan by way of Frogtown.

That particular plan has given way to a new proposed route by way of Jelliff Mill Road that the town’s Utilities Commission has yet to vet.
