Public Involvement

The Connecticut Department of Transportation is committed to fostering trust with the community through open and honest communication. The Walk Bridge Program features a dynamic Public Information Team devoted to connecting and working with the public as part of the process.

How Can We Help You?

Here's what you can count on from the Walk Bridge Program's Public Information Team.

We're invested in a two-way dialogue with the community. You can reach the Program through our website, in-person, over the phone and by email to ask questions or express concerns. Here's where you can find us:

We provide consistent Program updates including, but not limited to:

  • Construction alerts
  • New Program developments
  • Impacts to the community

We deliver essential Program information in many formats to reach people where they are. Here are some of the ways we conduct our outreach:

  • We share information digitally on this website, via email and on social media
  • Hard copy materials are available in the Welcome Center and we deliver construction notices door-to-door
  • We reach out face-to-face by hosting public information meetings, being available at the Walk Bridge Welcome Center and participating in community events and festivals

We foster connections with the community to help our neighbors understand the scope, impacts and benefits of the Program:

  • Through strong relationships with respected organizations like the Norwalk Chamber of Commerce, the Maritime Aquarium, Spinnaker Real Estate and dozens more
  • Through cultural offerings like our arts and education programs
  • By offering translated materials, holding our public meetings in ADA accessible venues and offering interpreter services when needed to overcome language and mobility barriers
