Downtown Bedford Streetscape

Location: Bedford, Pennsylvania Client: Downtown Bedford, Inc.

JMT collaborated with a variety of key stakeholders to develop a streetscape and beautification enhancement for the downtown business district in Bedford, PA.

JMT worked with Downtown Bedford Incorporated, Bedford Borough, PennDOT and other key stakeholders in developing an overall streetscape concept for the downtown district, as well as construction documents for three streets.  JMT's efforts began with the coordination of field surveys, site inventory and analysis and development of various streetscape enhancement alternatives. Through a collaborative effort with the design steering committee, JMT was able to establish a preferred streetscape concept and streetscape improvement limits that matched the available budget. JMT worked directly with PennDOT District 9-0 in preparing construction documents for the various improvements. The development of the construction documents included the necessary environmental documents, as well as the various utility, safety and traffic reviews.  

Specific design elements included curb and sidewalk replacement, pedestrian scale street lighting, decorative street sign posts, landscape plantings, street furnishings and ADA compliant curb ramps. One of the unique areas associated with the proposed improvements included upgrades to the existing Town Square to better accommodate the various events and festivals, including the Fall Foliage Festival which takes place over the first two weekends in October. The improvements within the Town Square area included electrical services upgrades, enhanced pedestrian scale lighting and a seat wall/monument area.
