The Board of Finance Tuesday approved $3,200 to be used for a traffic study at the Leroy West parking lot.

The Board of Selectmen, in its role as the Parking Authority, unanimously voted in April to re-purpose funds for a parking structure feasibility study on the lot in the 2014-15 capital budget.

The Parking Authority has expressed the need to conduct the traffic study before schools' summer break starts to get a true sense of the traffic in and out of the parking lot and on Leroy Avenue.

The Parking Authority is actively addressing the lack of parking in town and is searching for solutions to remedy the problem.; 203-330-6583;@Meg_DarienNews
