Cropped master plan layoutThe Town of Bridgewater's Downtown & Waterfront Master Plan envisions a bold new direction for Bridgewater's core. The Master Plan sets out a road map to direct the town toward greater economic stability, livability, and sustainability. It imagines a town that is vibrant and walkable - a place where residents and visitors can meander through a unique downtown that is focused on the LaHave River, and enjoy its diverse shopping opportunities.

The first phase of this plan to rejuvenate Bridgewater's downtown began in the fall of 2015, with the kickoff of the Take Back The Riverbank project. In the earliest phase, the South Parkade was closed and, on November 2, crews began preparing the parkade for removal as the first step in a major above-and-below-ground renovation for the section of King Street from Old Bridge to Dufferin Hill. In the spring, summer, and fall of 2016, work will continue, with below-grade improvements to water, sewer and stormwater lines, the restructuring of on-street parking, and the completion of a green and inviting promenade along the LaHave River.
