About the Project 


Welcome! We are happy you can join us 🎉. Winchester Street serves as a key gateway into the heart of Keene. This project will reconstruct and improve Winchester Street from the Route 101 Roundabout to the bridge over the Ashuelot River. New roundabout intersections at Key Road/Riverside Plaza and Pearl/Island Streets are included. The bridge that carries Island Street over the Ashuelot River will be replaced. In-line with the City's Complete Streets Policy, the project will address the needs of all users of the corridor including bicyclists and pedestrians.
