Reimagining Main St - Streetscape Design

Re-Imagining Main Street was an initiative that engaged the community in creating a vision, and then a conceptual design plan, to improve Main Street. This planning effort envisioned how Main Street could transform into a complete street by providing pedestrian and bicycle amenities that did not currently exist, enhanced transit access, streetscape amenities, create linkages to adjacent major destinations, and address traffic operations and safety issues that put the human experience front and center.

Along with numerous local and regional assets on Main Street and many others less than a mile from the corridor, Main Street is a vital connection between Downtown Hartford and the Hartford Hospital Area, the developing Downtown North area, and surrounding residential neighborhoods.
