East Main Street

East Main Street Bus Terminal

Transit Planning

After a realignment of bus stops in downtown Waterbury, the busiest bus stops in the downtown region ended up along a commercial stretch of East Main Street. This street was ill-equipped to handle the riders using the bus system, creating a danger to riders and congesting sidewalks to the detriment of local businesses. I provided new design options for the street, including a road diet from four lanes to two lanes and a bus bay/lane, additional sidewalk space for riders and patrons of local businesses, new shelters, and better lane continuity for drivers. The City of Waterbury is moving forward with the road diet design using NVCOG funding through the Connecticut LOTCIP program.
