CORNWALL — A pedestrian-activated signal will soon help ensure safety in West Cornwall village. The selectmen voted to approve spending for an engineering plan for the signal at their May 16 meeting.

The selectmen expect to get a state grant to pay for the installation work, estimated at between $10,000 and $15,000.

The selectmen agreed to take $5,500 from unexpended funds from this year’s budget to hire Scott Hesketh of F.A. Hesketh and Associates of East Granby to complete the engineering plan for the project. Construction is expected to take five weeks.
