Quotes from the Rowayton Fight:

Linnartz acknowledges the concerns about the project. But lowering the roadway to increase the bridge clearance to 12 feet will not make Rowayton Avenue a major truck thoroughfare, according to Linnartz.”There’s a lot emotion involved with trucks, obviously,” Linnartz said. But “this bridge is not being designed to normal standards, which is 14 foot 2 inches. Your normal box truck, your fuel truck, your city bus, your fire truck will comfortably go under there. It’s designed to accommodate those vehicles, not interstate highway tractor-trailer trucks.” 1

Rilling and state Sen. Bob Duff, D-25, requested the meeting with ConnDOT officials, which occurred Thursday at City Hall. […] Earlier that day, Rilling and Duff announced that the contract would be “withdrawn until more information is available” and that they had requested a meeting with ConnDOT “clarify” the project. “There is concern from Rowayton residents about additional truck traffic with this project and I want to ensure that we are working on the residents’ behalf,” said Duff in a statement that day. “Let’s get it right.” 2
