Springfield Main Street

Streetscape Improvement Plan

Harriman prepared a streetscape master plan as part of a Comprehensive Plan for Springfield’s downtown. The streetscape plan was built upon an intensive program to create a pedestrian-friendly environment that links the downtown to the nearby riverfront. The design character was built upon the historic qualities of the community and its open spaces. The project encompassed complete reconstruction of the streets and sidewalks for the majority of the downtown, including new landscape features, signage and streetlighting. The design approach strengthened connections among the City’s downtown districts through coordinated materials, plantings and amenities.
