Super 7 project in Limbo as state keeps focus on bridges

The Committee to Extend Route 7 regrets the widening of the current Route 7 which has resulted in more congestion and air pollution.  The addition of 6 or more new traffic lights has increased commuter use of side roads.  In addition to thousands of motor vehicle accidents just on Route 7, SWRPA has not provided any data on accidents on the many side streets that are used by commuters.  

Fairfield County needs to maintain its competitive edge both within the state and with the rest of the country.  Please go to our ACTION PAGE to let elected officials how you feel.  

Public information meeting were held earlier this year.  SWRPA which used to be for the new highway has changed their position 180 degrees.  You can read their position on their website If you disagree with them, provide feedback to them.  (A written letter or phone call is more effective than clicking on their "response box" which only results in an automated response.  Interestingly, their study does NOT include Cannondale in the Wilton corridor.  This study only includes iPark on the Norwalk/Wilton border, not the roads in Norwalk nor in Danbury.  Read our commentary

  • Minimize the widening of old Route 7

  • Promote discussion among elected officials in the towns of Norwalk, Wilton, Ridgefield, Redding and Danbury regarding completion of the expressway

  • Encourage the Connecticut Department of Transportation to request funding for this project
