Complete Streets Master Plan for Downtown New Britain

Final-NBCompleteStreetsMasterPlan_001

The Complete Streets Master Plan for Downtown New Britain is intended to serve as a guide for creating a more pedestrian-friendly, attractive and livable environment throughout the downtown area in preparation for the 2015 opening of the $572 million CTfastrak (Bus Rapid Transit) project. This Master Plan serves as a continuation of work that was identified in the City’s 2008 Downtown Development Plan, which recognized the need to make the downtown road network safer and more pedestrian-friendly. Road diets, shared parking and the first head out, angled parking spaces in the state are highlighted as part of the improvements strategy.
