Portsmouth Maplewood Avenue Streetscape

Portsmouth, New Hampshire

Harriman is currently engaged in creating a streetscape design for the Maplewood Avenue corridor in Downtown Portsmouth. The design concept, coordinated with numerous active public initiatives and private developments, is to integrate public circulation improvements for all modes of transportation within an attractive streetscape environment. The improved streetscape consists of several segments that will extend the overall character of the Downtown through a portion of the City’s Historic District and provide a transition into an expanding commercial base of the central business district. Using Complete Streets Policy recent established by the City and participation by area stakeholders, the design concept has an emphasis on pedestrian connectivity and streetscape enhancements adaptable to the evolving character of the corridor.
