Broadway Streetscape Project

 August 14, 2020

The Village of Nyack will be seeking a second round of bids for its downtown Broadway Streetscape project. The Village Board of Trustees rejected all bids previously received at their Thursday, August 13th, 2020 meeting, as all proposals came in higher than the allocated local match and NYS Department of Transportation grant funding.

A new RFP will be issued in the Fall 2020 with construction planned for the Summer of 2021 for improvements designed to enhance the appearance of North and South Broadway and South Franklin Street. The Village Board is also reviewing the possibility of implementing several pedestrian-focused sites of the plan that do not rely on state aid this fall.

 All bids for the Broadway Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) are currently under review by the Village of Nyack and McLaren Engineering.  Bids were opened on Jun 17, 2020 at 11:30 AM. 

The Village of Nyack is undertaking a project to develop planned streetscape pedestrian, transit and bicycle pathway improvements along Broadway through the New York’s Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) for the reconstruction of sidewalks, pedestrian improvements, and bicycling improvements on the entire length of North and South Broadway from the municipal line at the Village of Upper Nyack to the municipal line at Village of South Nyack.

The project will include bus shelters, concrete sidewalks, curbing, handicapped ramps, benches, street trees and bike racks. There will be an emphasis on sustainability in the design of the streetscape. The scope of the Project also includes an evaluation of the existing bike route on South Franklin Street, Artopee Way, Cedar Street, and Church Street. The Project will receive input from the business owners, residents, Village Board members and other stakeholders through the Steering Committee and Public Workshops.

As of April 29, 2020 the Village of Nyack has received final approval on the construction plans from the NYSDOT.  The project has gone out to bid on May 15, 2020 and responses are due back and scheduled to be opened on June 17, 2020 at 11:30am.

The goals and objectives for the project are as follows:

  • Provide pedestrian friendly and safe sidewalks and crossings
  • Enhancement of the business corridor
  • “Center piecing” of the major intersections
  • Softening of the streetscape to a more aesthetically pleasing with uniform features, providing sustainable features as applicable, and where possible improve rainwater runoff treatment and conveyance.
  • Evaluate and provide or enhance the existing benches, landscaping, bus shelters
  • Provide additional accommodations for bicyclists
  • Increased traffic flow with parking considerations
