The New Haven Department of Transportation is considering converting 10 downtown one-way streets into two-way streets.
The Department of Transportation has brought on Fuss & O’Neill, an engineering consulting firm, to create a new road grid to reflect a pedestrian, bike and car-friendly transportation system. After the firm conducted initial research, it held several charrettes — intense periods of architectual planning — last week at the New Haven Public Library to present its plan and invite comments from New Haven residents. The charrettes opened on Monday with a presentation on the firm’s initial proposal, held several input sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday, and closed on Thursday with a modified plan that incorporated feedback from local residents.
