Meriden 2020, Bringing It Together

Meriden seeks funds for downtown roadway and sidewalk improvements

The City of Meriden submitted an application to the State of Connecticut Office of Policy and Management (OPM) Responsible Growth and Transit–Oriented Development (TOD) Grant Program. The application seeks $2 million in state funds to improve six (6) roadway sections in downtown Meriden, including Colony Street, West Main Street, State Street, Perkins Square/South Colony Street and East Main Street.  The proposed project will help ensure that pedestrians, bicyclists, vehicles,
transit buses and the disabled are afforded safe and efficient access to the new Meriden Transit Center
(MTC), commuter rail service, over 500 new housing units and over 100,000 square feet of
commercial/flex space to be constructed over the next five years.
