SPECIAL NOTICE 2:
DOWNTOWN CROSSING FEATURED
ON THE ALONG THE LINES PODCAST
Along the Lines is a podcast hosted by Connecticut Department of Transportation Public Transit Bureau Chief Rich Andreski. The latest episode features Downtown Crossing, providing an in-depth look at the project and its benefits.
More than just a road way project, Downtown Crossing is working to undo the damage of Urban Renewal. Downtown Crossing is reconnecting New Haven's neighborhoods with bike and pedestrian-friendly streets (previously severed by the Route 34 "Highway to Nowhere"), freeing prime land for economic development, adding jobs, expanding the City’s tax base and boosting its burgeoning bioscience sector, as well as utilizing green technology for storm water management and flood control.
This is the bigger picture for which everyone on the Downtown Crossing team has been working so hard. The Downtown Crossing team thanks New Haven residents and visitors for their patience with construction and detour and we invite you to learn more about the project's larger vision.
