Construction Underway for Pocket Park

November 20, 2015

State Representative Steve Stafstrom (D-Bridgeport) welcomed news that construction is underway for the Brewster Street and Grovers Avenue Road Reconstruction and Pocket Park project.

“I am very pleased that work on this project has started and once completed it will transform a driving hazard into a real community asset,” Rep. Stafstrom said. “This has been a collaborative effort and I want to thank Mayor Bill Finch, Councilwoman Susan Brannelly, Bridgeport’s Office of Planning and Economic Development, and members of the Black Rock Neighborhood Revitalization Zone for all their great work on the project.”

The Brewster Street and Grovers Avenue Pocket park project will convert a currently dangerous and confusing intersection into a T-stop by reclaiming a large portion of the paved surface and converting it into a small community park.

The park will reflect the historic beach community character of Black Rock by integrating native coastal grasses, plantings, and nautical design features

The project is being funded by State Local Capitol Improvement Funds.
