The Bridgeport Main Street Revitalization set the record for the quickest implementation ever in a long history of Opticos projects. The feature on the Project for Public Spaces (PPS) website states it best: “9 week period from the first public meeting to installation!” The project team worked closely with Bridgeport residents, County agencies, and Caltrans to develop a design strategy for rightsizing Main Street. The community overwhelmingly supported a “road diet” that reduced the street from five lanes to three, and allowed additional space for pedestrians, bicyclists, and back-in angled parking.

Funded by a CalTrans Community-based Transportation Planning Grant, the project team included Mono County, the Local Government Commission, Walkable and Livable Communities Institute, Nelson\Nygaard Consulting Associates, Inc., and a very involved Bridgeport community.
