State Grant for Main Street, Barnum Ave.

January 10, 2018

Stratford has been awarded a “Complete Streets” $450,000 grant from the State of Connecticut to complete the technical design for improvements along a portion of Main Street and Barnum Avenue, south of East Broadway.

These funds will help Stratford adapt to new transportation models of bicycling and pedestrian options through the heart of our community. Focusing on making our downtown more attractive will serve Stratford in the long term.

This project is one of several that have been identified as a high priority in Stratford’s 2017 Complete Streets Plan, intended to enhance access and safety for bicyclists and pedestrians. Upon the completion of the technical design, the town will be positioned to begin implementing necessary improvements. Approximately $250,000 of the total grant will be set aside to cover costs associated with any environmental contamination discovered within the project boundary.
