Hampshire Street is a neighborhood roadway improvement project that serves as a gateway connection to downtown Auburn. This design is to improve upon pedestrian and vehicular circulation, and create a sense of neighborhood through inclusion of an enhanced streetscape consisting of street trees, esplanade plantings, and street furnishings.
The design team provided detailed design as well as photo-simulated views to communicate the design intent with community leaders, neighbors and town officials.

Portland Road Master Plan
Mitchell & Associates provided planning and concept design services for Portland Road, US Route One extending from Kennebunk’s Village Center to the Arundel Town Line. The initial phase is the development of design options for creating a strong pedestrian friendly and aesthetic treatment of this commercial gateway to Kennebunk. This work culminates in a master plan that will identify preliminary cost estimates and a phasing plan.
Services included significant public involvement with the business owners, property owners, and residents. Upon completion of the initial phase, design plans will be developed for construction of phased improvements.
Shore Road Pathway
Cape Elizabeth, Maine
The two mile segment of Shore Road connects Fort Williams Park with Cape Elizabeth’s town center. The project involved assessment of the site to assure public safety, maintenance of the current road character, and cost efficiency. The approval process required public meetings and visualization studies. Mitchell & Associates prepared preliminary design drawings and facilitated all community participation.
Construction of the Shore Road Pathway was completed in 2012 and the path is thoroughly enjoyed by the community.
Mitchell & Associates was selected to redesign Waterman Drive to meet the needs of the evolving community. The new design implements traffic calming measures to reduce traffic speed, provide additional parking and create an enhanced pedestrian environment.
Improvements include reduction of road width, tree plantings, 10'-wide shared use pathway and 6'-wide pathway on the neighborhood side, striped crosswalks, installation of pedestrian scale lighting, benches with seating areas, trash receptacles and bus shelters.
