Hartford P&Z to discuss pedestrian bridge for new CT Children’s tower

Hartford planning officials this week will discuss plans to authorize a pedestrian bridge over Washington Street that would connect a new tower wing of the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center with a new parking garage. During a meeting scheduled for Tuesday at 6 p.m., the city Planning & Zoning Commission and Inland Wetlands Commissions will review a resolution referred by the city’s Court of Common Council that would grant air rights and a sidewalk easement for the elevated walkway. Last year, Connecticut Children’s broke ground on a $280 million expansion that will reshape its Washington Street campus and include a new 195,000-square-foot, eight-story patient tower. The existing Hartford facility has about 321,000 square feet with 187 beds. The new tower will be anchored to the existing building.
