The Connecticut Department of Transportation is seeking public input on strategies for a corridor plan for CT Route 146 in Branford and Guilford.

The Corridor Management Plan will include a list of strategies to preserve and protect “the intrinsic and unique qualities” of the Route 146 Corridor – a National Register listed transportation corridor – paying attention to roadway safety for all travelers, the desires of local residents and businesses and the need to increase resilience against climate risks like flooding. 

The study area includes the 13-mile stretch of Route 146 from Route 1 (North Main St.) in Branford to the intersection with Route 1 (Boston Post Road) in Guilford. According to the plan’s website, nearly all of the route was designated a State Scenic Road in 1991. The route includes the Route 146 Historic District in Guilford and runs through three other historic districts. A map of the study area is available here.

The public survey on draft strategies for the Corridor Management Plan is open until 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 16. A handout of the potential strategies can be found here and a link to the survey here.
