NORWICH – At Thursday night’s meeting of the City of Norwich Public Works and Public Safety Committee, City Planning Director Todd Dreyer discussed a plan that would call for the opening of the southern portion of Hubbard Avenue to two-way traffic.
Hubbard Ave. is located adjacent to the railroad tracks directly across from the P&C parking lot. Currently only the northern portion of Hubbard accommodates two-way traffic.
“The proposal is related to NBT’s interest in acquiring properties on Front Street,” said Dreyer. Opening Hubbard Ave. to two-way traffic would make the closing of North Front Street, the road that currently takes traffic out of the City Court parking lot towards Front Street, possible. In a later phone interview, Dreyer explained only a small portion of Hubbard Ave., would be affected by the change. “The area around City Court would be unaffected,” said Dreyer.
