NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – The home on Winchester Avenue has been the location of three car accidents in the past three years. According to the New Haven Register, today there will be a barrier installed to protect the home from future accidents.

Bulent Ozalp owns the home on 91 Winchester Avenue which is near the intersection of Webster Street.  Cars have crashed directly into the side of the home, leaving gaping holes and lots of damage. The City Trasnportation, Traffic and Parking Director Doug Hausladen says a crew will start work on Wednesday to build a reflective barrier.  The barrier will cost $3,000 and will be place right in front of Ozalp’s property.Related Content: 3rd time a car has crashed into a New Haven home

The barrier was actually approved last Autumn, but with this rough winter, crews had to wait until the ground had thawed enough. The paper reports that Ozalp will prevent future accidents from happening.

A raised crosswalk is in the works on Webster Street according to City Engineer Giovanni Zinn.  That crosswalk will be near the intersection with the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail.
