New Streetscape For New Bedford’s Union Street

City of New Bedford

The last block of Union Street in downtown New Bedford is looking at some eye-catching improvements.   The city has just announced that they plan to build wide patio-style sidewalks and replace the asphalt street surface with cobblestones.

These improvements follow the recent completion of the Route 18 – JFK boulevard reconstruction which improved access to the waterfront from the downtown historic area.  The city plans to begin work soon, by replacing the concrete sidewalks with widr sidwalks made of brick and bluestone.  The 40-foot wide street will be narrowed to 26 feet and will be paved with cobblestones.  There’ll also be new lights installed and trees planted along that section of the street. 

Beginning as early as next week, the last block of Union will be closed to traffic for six to eight weeks for the re-construction project.
