DERBY — Concerns about big trucks and speeders dominated the conversation recently about a proposal to widen and realign Derby-Milford Road south of Route 34.
Valley Council of Governments Executive Director Rick Dunne, who presented the plan, said the goal is to move vehicles out to Route 34 more efficiently, while trying to maintain the rural character of Derby-Milford Road.
Route 34 has 32,000 vehicles per day in both directions, while Derby-Milford Road gets 7,200 vehicles daily in both directions, Dunne said.
Of the traffic, Fire Chief William Nicoletti III said vehicles from East End Hose Company 3 have never been hit, but there have been “many close calls.” He said a sign warning drivers to go slower near the station “got knocked down."
