After weeks of negotiations, New Haven’s Rt. 34 re-do plan has been redone, with raised intersections, traffic islands, curb bump-outs, and other pedestrian and bike-friendly elements that Alderman Justin Elicker said make him “medium happy.”

The city plans to fill in the Rt. 34 Connector and make over the area with new buildings and two “urban boulevards” as part of a $140 million project called “Downtown Crossing.”
