To the Editor:
I am wondering what the thought process was which had two temporary traffic lights installed in the Underhill Road area on Wednesday. Center Street is now closed to through traffic due to bridge construction on I-84, and local residents must travel the “long” way through Underhill Road to Alpine Drive, and back.

State plans to shift the travel lanes on two Interstate-84 bridges, which cross above Center Street in the Riverside section of Sandy Hook, in preparation for a two-year dual bridge reconstruction project have been delayed for technical reasons, according to a state Department of Transportation (DOT) spokesman.
DOT spokesman Kevin Nursick said this week that state officials are reviewing an issue concerning eastbound I-84’s existing bridge pavement geometry that must be resolved before a lane shift could be created on that bridge.
