Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is purpose of the study?

The Chelsea Harbor/Downtown Norwich Mobility Study is a key component in the City of Norwich’s efforts to provide streets that are safe and accessible for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, and transit users of all ages and abilities. The Study goals include improvements to livability, mobility, access to essential services, safe routes to the waterfront and Howard T. Brown Park, the Intermodal Transportation Center, the Norwich Marina and other downtown destinations. This will be accomplished through expanded bicycle facilities, sidewalk network improvements, and the reconfiguration of multi-lane, high-speed through streets that currently exist as a barrier between downtown proper and the City’s waterfront area, East, and West Side neighborhoods. The Study will develop alternatives to the current configuration and traffic flows of the study area with the above goals in mind.
