Take the Bloomfield Bridge Intersection Survey!

LINK FOR SURVEY

With heavy traffic and out-of-date infrastructure, the Bloomfield Bridge/Liberty Ave/Main St intersection needs attention. Tell us what YOU think about the crossroads. Your insights will be used to develop a plan to create a safer intersection for walkers, bikers, transit riders, and drivers alike.

Bloomfield Livable Streets and Bloomfield Development Corporation will be conducting this survey during the month of October. The data that it produces will then inform the community’s vision for improving the accessibility of the intersection.

The Crossings: Coming to Bloomfield October 18!

Meet outside the ShurSave grocery store at 4pm on Oct. 18 for The Crossings: Bloomfield, a pop-up street demonstration to promote pedestrian safety at the Liberty Ave/Main St/Bloomfield Bridge intersection. Participants will cross together carrying signs (“Vulnerable together. Safer together”), dancing to music, and dressing in costumes — essentially putting on a show for drivers, residents, government officials, and media. With “Sole-Train”-themed music and costumes and an after-party, this will be a fun-filled event for a heart-warming cause—making these crosswalks safer for all.
