The City of Bridgeport, in partnership with the State of Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development and Freeman Companies, will be improving the streetscape along the Black Rock Business District corridor of Fairfield Avenue. This project will rehabilitate the damaged streetscape and lighting along the pedestrian-oriented core of the business district, increase pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure, decrease blight, invest in district economic data analysis, and provides incentives for attracting new private investments and business.
The project focus will focus on the intersection of Fairfield Avenue and Brewster Street, as well as the gateway to Black Rock, which includes the Fairfield Avenue Bridge over Ash Creek.
1. Fairfield Avenue & Brewster Street (85% of project budget)
2. Black Rock Gateway (15% of project budget)
