A Different View of Suffield

It’s always interesting to view familiar things from a new perspective. The Suffield 350th Anniversary committee is excited to be able to present eight unique aerial images of Suffield and West Suffield on note cards.

Bridge Name Honors Fallen Serviceman Dustin Doyon

The Town of Suffield officially dedicates the Dustin L. Doyon Memorial Bridge as part of a ribbon-cutting ceremony on June 12, beginning at 10 a.m. The recently renovated Remington Street bridge will be renamed and serve as a tribute to Doyon, an Electronics Technician 2nd Class Petty Officer and Search and Rescue Swimmer for the United States Navy.

Traffic Signals Update

The DOT’s project to renovate the traffic control apparatus at Suffield’s complicated intersection in the town center seems to advance in spurts. Back during a bit of last September and most of October, an “in-ground” crew from a western Connecticut contractor called NY-Conn dug in and installed circuit boxes, underground wiring, and short posts for new pedestrian switches at Mountain Road, as well as the foundations for two new steel poles.

Sunrise Park Usage Grows

Seeking safe ways to socially distance and escape the confines of our homes, a new appreciation of nature has led to increased interest in Suffield park visitation. With more people exploring our picturesque Sunrise Park and Stony Brooke Park locations than ever before, additional maintenance and safety review has been needed.
