WILTON, Conn. -- The Connecticut Department of Transportation's Office of Engineering is looking to repair salt sheds in Darien, Trumbull, Westport and Wilton. 

The office is developing plans to rehabilitate the existing aging salt sheds with design slated for September and construction starting in spring 2015. The plans involve  sheds at 65 Brookside Drive in Darien, Route 111 Monroe Turnpike in Trumbull, 900 Post Road East in Westport and on Route 7 at Route 33 in Wilton. 

"The project involves replacing the existing roof shingles and performing other minor improvements," representatives said in a release. "The replacement product will be a polyvinyl chloride membrane roof."

The project will be undertaken with 100 percent state funds, according to the release. 

"It is the Department’s policy to keep the public informed and involved when such projects are undertaken," representatives said in the release. "It is important that the community share its concern with us to assist in the project’s development. At this time, it is not anticipated that a public information meeting will be necessary."

Those interested in receiving information on the projects should contact Theodore H. Nezames, transportation principal engineer, at 860-594-3298 or by e-mail at Theodore.Nezames@ct.gov. Those with questions should reference State Project No. 173-444.
