Funding for Farmington Ave. Improvements

May 23, 2016

I'm happy to announce that I have secured a grant of $1.5 million for the City of Hartford to expand a project making streetscape improvements along Farmington Avenue.

The City of Hartford has been working for several years on a streetscape project on Farmington Avenue. This additional funding will allow the end point of the project to be extended from the corner of Farmington Avenue and Sherman Street to the corner of Farmington Avenue and Prospect Avenue at the Hartford-West Hartford border.

The improvements will:

  • Make the street more pedestrian friendly
  • Provide better street lighting
  • Create more on-street parking

Extending this project through the rest of Farmington Avenue has been a priority of mine since its inception. I'm glad that now the residents and businesses of the entire West End section of Farmington Avenue will see the benefits of these improvements.
