WILTON, Conn. -- The Wilton Police Department and the Wilton Board of Education are in the final stage of implementing a School Zone on Route 7 (Danbury Road) in the area of Wilton High School.

The Wilton Police Commission, which is the local traffic authority, initiated plans to designate this area as a School Zone in an effort to enhance safety in the area during school openings and closings.

Once in place the speed limit near the school will be reduced from 40 mph to 30 mph between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. then again between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. 

Signage, flashing lights and a radar speed indicator will be in place to help warn motorists of the new speed limit.
