The Town of West Hartford has officially begun the New Park Avenue Complete Streets Improvements project!
In 2017, the Town completed a Complete Streets Study for the New Park Avenue Transit Area and obtained two State of Connecticut grants to implement the recommendations. The project will enhance New Park Avenue for all users between New Britain Avenue and Oakwood Avenue.
Project elements include decorative streetlights, buffered bike lanes, pocket parks, landscaped medians, street trees, wayfinding signage, enhanced mid-block crosswalks, and traffic signal improvements. In between major intersections, the roadway will be resurfaced and reduced to three vehicle lanes: one travel lane in each direction and a center two-way left-turn lane.
Survey and design have begun, with an expected construction start date of mid-2022. Construction is expected to finish by the end of 2023.
