Construction is underway on the urban farm (Vertical Harvest) and Downtown Westbrook Parking Garage at the corner of Mechanic Street and William Clarke Drive.
Utility relocation continues to replace aging infrastructure on:
- Mechanic Street (between Main Street and William Clarke.Drive/Route 25) through October.
- William Clarke Drive/Route 25 (one westbound lane) through December.
Both the urban farm and downtown parking garage will be substantially complete in late 2023. Your patience is appreciated as the foundation of Westbrook’s growth is carefully laid.
From 9/14/22 – 9/30/22
Vertical Harvest is a public private partnership (P3) project to redevelop the Mechanic Street public parking lot along William Clarke Drive. The project includes a free public parking garage next to an urban farm for growing produce. While under construction, residents and businesses can use a temporary parking lot constructed by the City in Saccarappa Park.
The access road around this project will be known as Vertical Way, which will remain a two-way street open throughout construction to ensure that patrons can visit all area businesses in the surrounding area.
