WILTON, Conn. – The Connecticut Department of Transportation will be performing construction at the rail crossing at Honey Hill Road in Wilton for about a week starting Friday, April 7.
Though the project will require the closure of the rail crossing in Wilton, service to several other communities along the Metro-North Railroad’s Danbury Branch will also be affected. There will be no train service between Danbury and Norwalk on Saturday, April 8, or Sunday, April 9.
During that weekend, commuters along the Danbury Branch will use bus service provided by Metro-North. Train service should return by Monday, April 10.
Signs in in the area of Honey Hill Road will direct drivers through a detour. Drivers, along with others in the area, should also be ready for “an increase in noise levels” in the area, officials said.
The work at the rail crossing – described by Metro-North officials as an “upgrade” -- is scheduled to conclude by 4 p.m. on Thursday, April 13, according to officials.
