Cheshire is making headway as the first in Connecticut to implement the new HAWK Crosswalk System, which is likely to be installed later this year on West Main Street.
The Cheshire Town Council approved the HAWK System during their meeting last night, which was proposed by the State Department of Transportation as a way to allow pedestrians to safely cross West Main Street when traveling on the Cheshire Farmington Canal Heritage Trail.
Councilors also discussed Arizon Structures of Missouri as the new vendor for the Community Pool tension membrane structure. A contract is being created by Town Attorney Al Smith’s firm, Murtha Cullina LLP, and when that is in place, the topic will once again be undertaken by the Council at an upcoming capital budget meeting.
For more information on the how the HAWK System works and what is in store for the Community Pool, see this week’s Cheshire Herald.
