For years the Transportation, Mobility, and Parking Department has received significant feedback related to the need for transportation improvements for Seaview Avenue corridor with recent coming as part of the Transportation Master Plan, but also as part of the East Norwalk Transit Oriented Development Study, and through citizen (Click and Requests) services, meetings with stakeholders and local businesses, and residents.
Outcomes of previous studies emphasized building upon the existing strengths of the neighborhood by improving the pedestrian facilities, increasing walkability, as well as a desire for better bike facilities and multi-use paths. The plan will address issues such as traffic congestion, speeding, parking, and improving access and mobility to local businesses, trails, and public spaces. Funding to begin a plan was approved by the Common Council in 2017. The department remains committed to analyzing all speed and crash data, as well as seeking public input and developing a plan to address existing issues and concerns while improving the overall aesthetics and safety of the area.
What kinds of transportation improvements are being considered
• Incorporating Complete Streets design standards for all modes of travel
• Creating safer intersections and slowing vehicle speeds
• Making biking safer and more comfortable
• Improving sidewalk conditions to ensure safety, access, and comfort to pedestrians on both sides of the corridor
• Improving on-street lighting
• Adding street trees, landscaping, and greenspace
• Improve on-street parking
• Better defining curb cuts to driveways where possible
