SCCOG Kicks Off Chelsea Harbor/Downtown Norwich Mobility Study
The Southeastern Connecticut Council of Governments (SCCOG) has received a CTDOT grant to conduct a Corridor Study of downtown Norwich. SCCOG has selected the consulting firm VHB to conduct the study, who will work with their subconsultant VN Engineers, to prepare a plan that will provide streets that are safe and accessible for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, and transit users of all ages and abilities. The study goals 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. This will be accomplished 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. The study will develop alternatives to the current configuration and traffic flows of the study area with the above goals in mind. The study process includes a number of opportunities for public engagement and input; to learn of these events and more about the study, please visit the study website at: https://www.downtownnorwichmobilitystudy.com/
