Black Rock to Seaside Park Bike Route

Bike Route Black Rock to Seaside Park

A nearly five-mile long bike route is being created to link Black Rock with Seaside Park.   Work is under way on the route, which begins at Fairfield Avenue and Gilman, runs along the water and through Black Rock to Park Avenue, ending at Seaside Park. “ This route will link two of our city’s most scenic areas, providing a safer area for bicyclists to traverse the city,” said Mayor Bill Finch.

This route is one of a series of paths that will be marked throughout the city to make roads more bicycle-friendly. The route will be designated as a “ Shared-Road” bicycle route for most of its length, and will be marked with signage both on the street and on the pavement. The total cost of the project is estimated at $14, 874.

A nearly five-mile long bike route is being created to link Black Rock with Seaside Park, funded by the City’s Bridgeport@Work capital improvements plan.

The proposed route will be aligned along the following roads:

From Fairfield Avenue to Gilman Street, Gilman Street becomes Eames Boulevard;
Continue along Eames Boulevard, Eames Boulevard becomes Grovers Avenue;
Continue on Grovers Avenue to Brewster Street;
Turn right onto Brewster Street to Ellsworth Street;
Turn left onto Ellsworth Street to Prescott Street;
Turn right onto Prescott Street to Harbor Avenue;
Turn left onto Harbor Avenue and a quick left onto Yacht Street to Saint Stephens Street;
Turn left onto Saint Stephens Street to Wordin Avenue;
Turn right onto Wordin Avenue to Bostwick Avenue;
Turn left onto Bostwick Avenue to Railroad Avenue;
Turn right onto Railroad Avenue to Park Avenue; and
Turn right onto Park Avenue to Seaside Park
