On behalf of the town of Simsbury, CT and the Capitol Region Council of Governments, Fuss & O’Neill led a multi-disciplinary corridor study of Route 10. Serving as the town’s main street and a state highway, Route 10 is the primary transportation facility in Simsbury.
Partnering with Code Studio, GM2, and Parsons Brinckerhoff, we used an innovative charrette to bring together the public with local officials, state engineers, stakeholders, and the design team. Supporting the town’s revitalization plans, the workshop focused on context-sensitive mobility, land use, and placemaking.
Recommendations included upgraded bicycle and pedestrian facilities, streetscape enhancements, intersection capacity and safety improvements, strategic roadway connections, and holistic transit strategies such as Park & Ride improvements.
The study improved the Town’s application for designation as “Bicycle Friendly Community” and set the framework for enhancements to all modes of transportation through Simsbury.
