Starting April 6 Greenwich Common will be closed and construction will begin on two adjoining projects – the Greenwich Common project, located on Greenwich Avenue next to the Board of Education building ad 290 Greenwich Ave, and the Town Hall Exterior Site Improvements – Phase II project, which will encompass an area between the rear of Town Hall and the Greenwich Common.
Greenwich Common will be closed throughout the duration of the project, which is estimated to last 3 to 4 months.
The projects will be coordinated together and be phased to create the least amount of pedestrian disturbance possible. During the length of the project, there will be days/weeks where the sidewalk connecting Town Hall to the Board of Education Building will be closed. The Town of Greenwich asks that all pedestrians exhibit caution while traveling through this area and obey detour and closure signs whenever posted.
The Department of Public Works’ project entitled “Town Hall Exterior Site Improvements – Phase II” consists of the removal of existing concrete steps, regrading and the construction of a new, more pedestrian friendly sidewalk. The project was designed by the Engineering Division.
The Department of Parks & Recreation project entitled “Greenwich Common” consists of the redevelopment of an existing park with a new paver sidewalk, site lighting, benches, tables, decorative iron arches and landscaping. The project was designed by Conte & Conte Landscape Architects and the Engineering Division.
