e-mail address: stetteh@ci.new-london.ct.us


The City of New London will implement a new traffic pattern on a trial basis on Bank Street between Tilley Street and State Street, effective Thursday, July 27, 2017.

The new traffic design is intended to ease congestion and aggressive driving, better facilitate on-street parking, increase pedestrian safety, promote development, and improve the image of the central Bank Street business district.

Bank Street will be restriped between Tilley and State Streets to enable a shared bicycle lane with one (1) traffic/travel lane, as well as create "buffer" areas so passengers can safely exit their vehicles without disrupting traffic flow.

The pilot initiative shall last approximately 90 days.

The City of New London Department of Public Works will restripe Bank Street beginning at 9:00pm on Wednesday, July 26, weather permitting. The work will proceed overnight and be completed by morning in order to minimize the disruption to business operations.

Motorists will continue to park on both sides of Bank Street in accordance to New London's on-street parking regulations when conducting business within the City Center District.

Public feedback is welcome during this test period please email stetteh@ci.new-london.ct.us
