According to the Danbury Newstimes today (2/17/09), Old Ridgebury Road is going widened from two to four lanes from Larson Drive up the four way stop light intersection with Briar Ridge Road & Benson Road. The city just put the work up to bid until the middle of March. Residents living and working in the Ridgebury neighborhood will benefit tremendouslyy, because the road is very busy in the morning heading up the hill to the various office buildings & campus for Boehringer Ingelheim and going back toward the highway at night. It is nice to see the city invest in some infrastructure since they did allow for a lot of devolpment to occur in recent years including the Kensington Woods & Briar Woods townhome communities, Ridgebury Hills, the Willow Grove at Danbury apartments, as well as the Rivington development.
The Ridgebury neighborhood of Danbury is located in southwest Danbury along the Ridgefield border. Close to I-84, I-684 & several train stations, the Ridgebury neighborhood is great for communiting toward New York City & White Plains. Homes in the Ridgebury neighborhood are primarily ‘luxury’ townhomes built within the 10 years, newer single family homes built on about .25 acre lots as well as about 75 homes built in the 1960s on about an acre of land. The neighborhood is part of the Mill Ridge & Roger’s Park Middle School school system of Danbury. The area is flanked by exit 1 and 2 of I-84 to the north and the Ridgefield border to the South.
