Final Report on Hartford's
Transportation Improvement Plan
The state now has its hands on the final report for a multifaceted plan to transform Hartford and the surrounding area. The Greater Hartford Mobility Study outlines transportation projects and improvements that will take shape and bring new life over several years. The community’s feedback was instrumental in coming up with the plan to reconnect neighborhoods, reduce traffic, improve safety for everyone, recapture the riverfront, and much more.

Several early action projects will be implemented within the next three to five years, improving safety and mobility for the public. Some examples of potential early action projects:

  • Transforming Pulaski Circle with improved circulating sidewalks, ramps, and markings for drivers and pedestrians while creating safe routes for bicyclists
  • Intersection improvements on Albany Avenue and Main Street to improve safety, traffic operations, and accessibility for all users
  • Enhancing pedestrian facilities at highway ramps to maximize pedestrian connectivity and enhance the comfort and security of pedestrian crossings
