Resilient Bridgeport

In 2014, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) selected the City of Bridgeport and a multidisciplinary design team led by New Orleans-based Waggonner & Ball Architecture/ Environment to prepare an integrated resilience framework for Bridgeport through the federal Rebuild by Design Competition. The resulting HUD grant award of $10,000,000, received by the State of Connecticut in 2015, is being used to develop a plan for reducing flood risk and improving resilience for the South End and Black Rock Harbor areas, and to build a pilot project in the South End that serves as a catalyst for full implementation of broader flood protection and resilience strategies.
