A once unsafe and uninviting parking area and street in Bristol’s downtown has now been transformed into a safer, more appealing area. The Prince Lane pedestrian safety and beautification project was one of the main focuses of Bristol CORE.
The project was split into two phases, the first which focused on the backs of buildings, buried power lines, and adding cross walks, was completed in August 2014. This project was a collaboration between Bristol CORE and the owner of the private property. It was funded through $240,000 of earmarked money from the Sen. Leahy Transportation and Housing & Urban Development bill, as well as a $75,000 state transportation grant.
