Mayor Bill Finch announced recently that the City of Bridgeport will begin a streetscape improvement project for Brooklawn Avenue between Villa and North Avenues.

The scope of the project calls for improvements of the existing roadway, streetscape enhancements to Clinton Park and Stratfield Park, both located at the intersection of Brooklawn and North avenues, and landscaping and signage improvements.

“Throughout the City, we have focused on upgrading infrastructure and the quality of our streetscapes to create a more attractive, welcoming area for our residents and visitors,” said Mayor Finch. “This will be a significant upgrade to Brooklawn Avenue, a key thoroughfare that links our vibrant West End and West Side neighborhoods to the North End, and our neighbors in Fairfield.”

This project is being partially funded by Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) and by a grant awarded to the City by the State of Connecticut’s Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD).

“Brooklawn Avenue is a very important thoroughfare for the West Side and West End. Beautifying this road along with Clinton and Stratfield Parks create a welcoming gateway to the neighborhood for drivers and pedestrians,” said City Council member M. Evette Brantley, representing the 132nd District.

“This project will significantly improve the Bridgeport portion of Brooklawn Avenue, an important gateway into our city,” said State Rep. Auden Grogins.

During construction work day, a police officer will be on site for traffic protection and control. The City is working collaboratively with the Connecticut Department of Transportation on these improvements to Brooklawn Avenue.

“Thank you to City Council members Brantley and Rev. John Olson, State Rep. Grogins, City staff and State officials for their hard work in making this streetscape project possible,” added Mayor Finch.

The estimated cost of the project is approximately $300,000 and the scheduled completion date is October 1, 2013.
