Wickford Waterfront Project

The Town issued a request for qualifications (RFQ) in 2019 to assist the town with the Wickford Waterfront Project, a key strategy towards implementing a multi-tiered approach to boosting the economy and vibrancy of Wickford.  

The project scope includes designing better pedestrian connections between the village and the waterfront; increased docking opportunities for boats and kayaks; implementing low impact stormwater management with enhanced green infrastructure to mitigate storm water runoff and high tide flooding; improved vehicular circulation; improved signage, such as a wayfinding kiosk at the water’s edge and wayfinding pedestrian signage and improved lighting and landscaping.

The Beta-Inc group was selected to complete the project for the town.    

There will be a site visit on Wednesday, September 30th at 5:30 PM in the municipal parking lot where Beta will seek input on their initial design concepts for the improvements.


There have been several projects which have led to the design phase we are now completing. Please click on the following for more background information on the project.
