New Britain streetscape project to transform Downtown

The Downtown transformation is intended to compliment the CTFASTRAK station, and make the entire Central Park area, from the Courthouse to Broad Street more pedestrian friendly. Plans for new signage, wider sidewalks, narrower intersections and redesigned traffic patterns are largely grant-funded.

  • Phase 1: Surrounds the new police station: NOW COMPLETE
  • Phase 2: Elm St and around the
    Main St. corner
  • Phase 3: Central Park and
    West Main Street to High St.
  • Phase 4: Will include the relocation of the Bank St. bus hub
  • Phase 5: Currently in planning stage

Plans for new signage, wider sidewalks, narrower intersections, bike lanes and redesigned traffic patterns are largely funded through federal grants and the issue of bonds.
