Description

Last week the DOT undertook a massive clearcutting of mature trees that previously screened I-91 and the entrance and exit ramps in the Wooster Square area.
What were once embankments with trees blocking both the sites and sounds of the highways for the residences south and north of Wooster Square are now naked hills.

Needless to say this has drastically decreased the quality of life of those living near the highway.

Without the trees, the noise level has increase to the point where residents previously happy living near the highways are now having to wear earplugs to sleep.

While this might be necessary for the interchange reconstruction underway, this has had a significant and negative impact on Wooster Square and its residences.

I hope that the DOT realizes just how big an impact this has, and has plans to address this as construction continues, because right now it's a disaster.
