An article on the CT News Junkie web site quotes Bike Walk Connecticut Board Member, Chris Brown.
A group of Hartford residents told state Department of Transportation engineers Tuesday that they need to do better when it comes to offering up design concepts for the pedestrian bridge over Flower Street.
“I want you to believe in yourself more,” Chris Brown, director of Bike Walk Connecticut, told them.
The meeting Tuesday comes after a year-long battle between the state agency and the Asylum Hill and Frog Hollow neighborhood organizations.
The neighborhood groups fought for Flower Street, sandwiched between Farmington and Capitol Avenue, to remain open during construction of the New Britain-to-Hartford busway. They also wanted to ensure it remained open to foot and bike traffic after the busway is built, which is why they challenged the DOT at an administrative hearing that concluded in May.
