Town officials on Tuesday approved a $20,000 contract with a Branford-based company to replace cable motor vehicle safety rails along a road near the Country Club of New Canaan. The double-cable guiderail toward the eastern end of Country Club Road “is no longer allowed,” according to Public Works Director Tiger Mann. “It’s in disrepair and we would like to come forward and put in the Merritt Parkway-type steel-backed wood rail through that area,” Mann said during a regular meeting of the Board of Selectmen, held via videoconference. “We think it’s going to be a nice gateway into town.”
First Selectman Kevin Moynihan and Selectmen Kit Devereaux and Nick Williams voted 3-0 in favor of the $20,077.50 contract with Atlas Outdoor. Williams said he was “delighted to see” that a change was coming.
