Getting fancy in Plainville

Posted by Ralph Ranalli July 24, 2007 09:27 AM


Improvements to the intersection of Route 106 and Route 1A in downtown Plainville should be mostly completed by winter, Town Administrator Joseph Fernandes said.

Workers are widening the intersection and replacing sidewalks and traffic lights. Although the project is funded with state and federal money, Fernandes said the town is paying extra for "old-fashioned" looking traffic lights.

Selectmen have created a committee to come up with a plan to revitalize the downtown area, and they hope the ornamental lights will fit in with that plan, Fernandes said.
