Freight Street Complete Street

NV5 prepared preliminary design plans for the reconstruction of Freight Street in Waterbury, CT, from the Naugatuck River to Meadow Street. The design recreates Freight Street as a “complete street” that connects downtown Waterbury with the multi-use greenway path and riverfront park that NV5 is designing along the Naugatuck River. The new design significantly narrows the pavement and limits parking to one side of the street, creating space for a two-way shared-use path on the south side of the street buffered from the road by rain gardens.
