Fuss & O’Neill provided the design services for the Green Infrastructure stormwater improvements along Pine Street in the Transit Oriented Development district.
The design for the Pine Street corridor within Pawtucket’s TOD Conant Thread District included roadway lane diets to provide a shared mutli-use path to increase bikeabilty and walkability to the new train station at the terminus of Pine Street as well as green infrastructure. Bioretention stormwater planters were incorporated into the design to help reduce peak runoff into the City’s combined sewer system and promote infiltration. The bioretention planters were placed along the curbside with inlets to capture roadway runoff. The planters provide a separation buffer from the roadway, enhancing the pedestrian experience. The planters include engineered soil media, pretreatment sediment forbays, and are planted with low maintenance flowering perennials and native warm season grasses.
