Committee to study improvement of Halls Road in Old Lyme
Old Lyme — The improvement of Halls Road, the town’s main commercial thoroughfare, will be the task of a new committee.
Halls Road, a section of Route 1, is lined with businesses, a post office, restaurants and views of the Lieutenant River.
The selectmen voted Monday to approve the charge for the committee and are expected to finalize the appointment of members at their next meeting.
The Lyme-Old Lyme Chamber of Commerce had held a business breakfast event in the spring of 2014 on the topic of creating a master plan for Halls Road.
