Connecticut DOT : Various Locations

The Merritt Parkway –one of the original and scenic roadways in the United States, built in the 1930’s and designated a historic landmark and national treasure– is being restored, including its bridges, signage, landscaping, and service stations.

This project provides new service station canopies for six locations along the parkway: on north and south sides in three towns. This design moves the canopies and pumps away from the stations for functional, safety and aesthetic reasons, allowing the restored stations to be experienced as they were meant to be and providing a new safe pedestrian experience for patrons using the conveniences of the service stations.
