The Southeastern Connecticut Council of Governments (SCCOG) is seeking consultant services to conduct a corridor study of the Chelsea Harbor and downtown Norwich area. The Chelsea Harbor/Downtown Mobility Study is a key component in the City of Norwich’s efforts to provide streets that are safe and accessible for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, and transit users of all ages and abilities. The planning study goals will include improvements to livability, mobility, access to essential services, safe routes to the waterfront and Howard T. Brown Park, the Intermodal Transportation Center, the Norwich Marina and other downtown destinations; through expanded bicycle facilities, sidewalk network improvements, and the reconfiguration of multi-lane, high-speed through streets that currently exist as a barrier between downtown proper and the City’s waterfront area, East, and West Side neighborhoods. There is a need for improved wayfinding for pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, and transit users, as the downtown is currently a confusing maze of one-way, high-speed streets with a number of signalized intersections and expansive pavement widths that make travel difficult for residents and visitors alike.
Submission instructions and additional details are contained in the RFQ below. Submissions are due by 4:00 p.m. (EST) on Friday, December 23, 2022.
