BRIDGEPORT, CT (September 20, 2011) – Sidewalks have been installed, and storm drainage has been upgraded along Gilman Street in the City’s Black Rock neighborhood as part of the City’s Bridgeport@Work capital improvements plan.
Approximately 1,100 feet of new concrete sidewalks and curbs have been installed along Gilman from Courtland to the existing stone dust walking path that runs to St. Mary’s by the Sea. The stone dust walkways have been upgraded as well, in keeping with the natural setting along the water’s edge. The project cost $141,363.
“St. Mary’s by the Sea is one of the most popular attractions in our City. These sidewalk upgrades will make visiting the park a safer and more enjoyable experience.”
“This project will make it easier and safer for residents to walk along that section of Gilman Street where there were previously no sidewalks,” said 130th District Council representatives Susan Brannelly and Martin McCarthy, both of whom were supportive of this project in their district.
