East Main & Myrtle Streets, Downtown Streetscape, New Britain, CT
The East Main Street and Myrtle Street Downtown Streetscape Improvement included approximately 2,000 linear feet of roadway reconstruction on Myrtle Street and East Main Street. The improvements also included a road diet to narrow the pavement, granite curbing, brick paving strip, concrete sidewalks, street trees and street lighting, a bike lane, and the replacement of the traffic signal at the New Brite Plaza/Route 72 on ramp intersection. The existing center median was eliminated and a single roadway crown was constructed at the center line.
Additionally, on Myrtle Street the pavement was milled and overlaid to the existing grades and East Main Street received a full depth pavement reconstruction curb to curb.
This project was funded under the LOTCIP program.
