The Town of Hamden is planning on installing new sidewalks to connect areas where there are currently no sidewalks. This project seeks to develop a fully walkable sidewalk corridor in the Town of Hamden. The proposed project will bridge currently unconnected sidewalk routes located within a number of residential neighborhoods and commercial areas. Construction goals include the extension and connection of existing sidewalk routes and the installation of curb ramps and crosswalks. There will also be some pavement markings and traffic light changes.

The Town has received a grant for sidewalk installations along portions of Augur Street, Benham Street, Davis Street, and Treadwell Avenue. Our consultant’s survey crews have located the existing conditions before starting design.

We are looking for your opinion. What do you want to see when it comes to design?

The Town of Hamden will conduct additional public outreach of local residents for input. Your opinion will be used by the Town and GM2 to create the location of the new sidewalks. The Town will be conducting an additional public input session when the design reaches preliminary design (30% completion). We anticipate the next public input session sometime in the end of June  2021.

We previously had an electronic survey on SurveyMonkey.com at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/N2MT7BT
