Whalley Avenue, Goffe Street and Dixwell Avenue are three of New Haven’s major thoroughfares, named in honor of three English judges who fled England for New Haven in the late 1600’s. These streets are at the crossroads of Yale University, just north of the city’s downtown. Traffic circulation, parking and pedestrian flow were complex issues at this busy intersection. Vital to the design and success of the project was the retention of the historic elements and architectural style as well as the thriving business district and local charm. In addition to the upgrades of five intersections, the project included the design of parking areas, sidewalks and crosswalks; intersection geometry and traffic signals; coordination of utility relocations; and improvements to the storm water management system.
