WESTPORT - The Connecticut Department of Transportation is planning changes to the Post Road East and Bulkley Avenue intersection in Westport to make it safer for crossing.

The DOT plans to install push button pedestrian signal heads and white crosswalk indicators, as well as extend the sidewalk. The project will be up for bidding at the end of the month.

The move comes on the heels of Saturday's pedestrian fatality. Westport police say three pedestrian deaths have occurred on the stretch of road between Maple Avenue and the Fairfield Town Line since 2008.

The DOT plans on breaking ground in 2014 and completing the project in the same year. The project is estimated to cost $50,000 and will be funded by state money.
