Community Connectivity Grant Program

The Town of Wethersfield was recently awarded a grant from the State of Connecticut's Community Connectivity Grant Program (CCGP). These funds are to be used for various street and sidewalk projects to improve bicycle and pedestrian safety in Old Wethersfield.

The Town identified eleven (11) projects scattered throughout Old Wethersfield for this funding:

  1. Main Street Pavement Markings and Line Striping for Heritage Way Bike Path.
  2. Pavement Replacement and Pavement Markings at the Main Street, Church Street and Marsh Street Intersection.
  3. Improvements at Main Street and Hartford Avenue to Establish a 3-Way Stop Controlled Intersection.
  4. Improvements at the Main Street and State Street Intersection to reduce the island size, pedestrian crossing improvements including Howard Avenue.
  5. Improvements at the Marsh Street and Broad Street Intersection To Close the Sidewalk Gap and Improve Crosswalk.
  6. Improvements at the Heritage Way Bike Path connection at Hanmer Road to add sidewalk and a stone dust path to the Cove Warehouse.
  7. Pedestrian Crossing Improvements near 200-212 Main Street.
  8. Changes to the Intersection Geometry at the Nott Street and Garden Street Intersection and Relocate Sidewalks and Crosswalks.
  9. Improvements along Garden Street and Standish Park To Create On-Street Parking, Add Sidewalk and A Crosswalk at Hubbard Place.
  10. Pedestrian Crossing Improvements at the Main Street and Center Street Intersection.
  11. Bicycle Parking on Main Street.

Many of these improvements were recommended in the 2008 Old Wethersfield Master Plan report.
