|FLOODING STUDY OF FAIRFIELD UNDERPASSES
The Connecticut Institute for Climate Resiliency and Adaptation (CIRCA) and the Town of Fairfield are collaborating on a planning level to study to investigate solutions to persistent flooding problems at four underpasses that cross under the New Haven Line in Fairfield.
Flooding in these locations occurs following heavy rainfall and can be exacerbated when combined with a high tide. These underpasses are key north/south connections between the Town’s shoreline and interior sections.
CIRCA will be hosting the first of three engagement events on Thursday, March 2nd, at 7:00 PM, using the Teams webinar platform. This event will be an opportunity for residents to meet the study team, learn about CIRCA and the scope of Fairfield's pilot project, and provide feedback about your experience with flooding downtown and at these underpasses.
