Reconnecting the Riverfront Master Plan

Branded as “Reconnecting the Riverfront,” this project reconceptualizes Westport’s Downtown District along the Saugatuck River by enhancing pedestrian access, reclaiming vital green spaces, and incorporating resilient design to address current and future flooding. Langan is providing landscape architecture, site/civil and traffic engineering, community engagement, and cost estimating services for the project. Our traffic team performed a traffic and parking evaluation of the area east of the Saugatuck River. This evaluation helped balance traffic flow and parking within the established downtown retail district as part of the Riverfront Greenway, which optimized vehicular parking and public green space in Parker Harding Plaza. Langan continues to advise the Town of Westport throughout the ongoing master planning process.
