Downtown Bicycle-Pedestrian Gap Analysis

Design New Haven has posted an in-depth roundup of the city's public meeting, including press coverage, here:

From one article: "The suggested improvements found support from residents like Meg Howard, who works for Atelier Ten, a London-based environment-friendly infrastructure consulting firm with an office in New Haven. “I have no car, so I walk or bike everywhere,” she said. “I need safe streets.”"

At the meeting, Nelson/Nygaard recommended improving crosswalk signaling, eliminating right-turn-on-reds, and establishing a safer bicycle route system to Union Station. Funded by SCRCOG, the group has also been working "behind the scenes" on other projects affecting Downtown New Haven, including the 360 State Street development.
