Broadway Streetscape Project

August 16, 2022

Work is progressing on South Broadway between Burd Street and Main Street on the EAST side of the street. Corners have been removed and curb formation is taking place as well as the demolition of the sidewalk. The contractor is helping provide access where needed and will leave the stores, restaurants, and residences fully accessible at the end of each work day. Concrete is expected for curbs and the "buffer area" between the curb and the ADA compliant sidewalk "walkway" by the end of the week. The weather is cooperating and the project is on schedule for this block. 


August 10, 2022

On Thursday, August 11th, 2022, surveyors for the new sidewalk between Burd Street and Main Street will be on site. This will require parking restrictions on both sides of the street. As soon as they surveyors complete their work, the parking spaces will be reopened. Construction is expected to start on Monday, August 15th, 2022 on the EAST side of the street. Parking will be restricted on both sides during construction to maintain traffic flow and safety.  Each block is expected to take approximately1.5 weeks, weather dependent.

 BROADWAY SIDEWALK PROJECT UPDATE

First, thank you for your cooperation and patience as this important pedestrian safety project moves forward! The work on South Broadway and up at 5th Ave is essentially complete. The next two construction projects will start Monday 8/8/22 at First Ave and Monday, 8/15/22 at Burd St.

  1. High Ave to First Ave old gas line removal by O&R to make way for new drainage system to cure the puddling problems at First Ave. O&R will dig test pits next week and start pipe removal as early as Friday, August 12. This project will require closure of parking spaces on both sides of the block during construction hours (7 AM to 5 PM). The project will limit traffic to a single lane and use flaggers to let vehicles through. The project does not impact sidewalks or doorways. A roll-off container will be parked on First Ave, along with some heavy equipment. 
  2. Burd St to Main St sidewalk project. Survey work will take place next week, and construction will probably begin on August 15, 2022, starting with the East side of the street working from Burd to Main. Upon completion of the east side, the work will switch to the West side of the street and progress south from Main to Burd. Parking will be prohibited on both sides of the street during construction hours. Two-way traffic will be maintained. This is important since Broadway will be pretty jammed up due to the gas line removal a few blocks away. If you have observed the work on South Broadway you will be somewhat familiar with the process:
    1. Access to doorways is maintained via wooden ramps over construction zones and sidewalks are kept passable wherever possible using wooden walkways as needed. 
    2. The work process has the following steps:
  1. Saw cut asphalt where needed for curb removal
  2. Remove old curb, form and pour new curb, backfill trench in road with gravel and concrete.
  3. Remove old sidewalk in sections
  4. Form and pour new sidewalk, starting at face of building, then doing “buffer” area near curb.
  5. Asphalt along gutter side of new curb
  6. Cut grooves in sidewalk where needed (near corners)

Weather and unforeseen circumstances permitting, each side of the block will take about 1.5 weeks  to complete. Sometimes delays occur because of delays in materials, such as cement deliveries, for example.

  • November 17, 2021: 
    Work resumes today on the North Broadway sidewalk between High Ave and First Ave today. DOT approved changes to reduce the slope of the sidewalk, yet maintain an ADA compliant sidewalk. Concrete will be poured on Thursday, November 18, 2021. No other sidewalk work will take place over the winter months. Work will resume as early in the spring as the weather allows. Thank you to all our residents at  Victoria Mews, who have been very patient and cooperative during this process.  


    November 12, 2021: 
    The median island on North Broadway has been removed at the discretion of the Village Board. A redesigned "bump-out" crosswalk will be constructed in this area in the Spring 2022. At this time we are waiting for DOT approval on the redesign of this area. Updates will be posted as they become available.  The sidewalk on N. Broadway between High Avenue and First Avenue is also being redesigned to address the slope, we expect to have construction resume the week of November 15, 2021. 
    Statement from the Mayor and Village Board: 
    Over the past few weeks we have been experiencing some inexcusable issues with the engineering firm and aspects related to the Broadway Streetscape Project.  We have been and will continue to pursue every option available to ensure these issues are remedied and that potential issues are identified and remediated before any future work proceeds. 
    This has been a frustrating process from the very beginning of this project. We still see the possibilities of a wonderful upgrade for Broadway.  Another in a series of upgrades that makes our village pedestrian friendly and safe.  More details on the Broadway Streetscape 


    October 29, 2021: Unfortunately the sidewalk project has hit a setback.  The partially constructed sidewalk along North Broadway between First Ave and High Ave will have to be demolished and rebuilt.  The original design was engineered to comply with DOT regulations for a five foot wide walkway, however, it resulted in an unacceptable slope past the walking path to the curb. We have ordered the contractors to stop work while the Village works with engineers and the DOT on a remedy.  The contractors will be back on site this week to rebuild the sidewalk.

    Update on the median island on North Broadway:  The Village Board decided on October 28, 2021 to remove the median island. It will be replaced with "bump-outs" on the west and east side of the North Broadway in addition to a crosswalk. The contractor will be back on site beginning November 1, 2021 to demolish the island. Reconstruction of this area will be scheduled for Spring 2022. 


    October 22, 2021: Sidewalk demo and prep work continues on N. Broadway between High Ave and First Ave. The crosswalk on North Broadway between Fourth Ave and Fifth Ave is under review and work is expected to resume next week. The contractor expects to finish the current work zones this fall. The project is expected take approximately a year to complete. We will update the schedule and post progress reports weekly while the construction is active. Expect a full shut down for winter months.

    July 26, 2021
    The Broadway Streetscape project was awarded to A-Tech Concrete at a special meeting of the Village Board on Monday, July 19, 2021.  NYS DOT is currently reviewing the award. 

    June 4, 2021
    The Broadway Streetscape final project plans are out to bid and bids will be opened on July 2, 2021 at 11:30am at Village Hall.  
    May 4, 2021
    The Broadway Streetscape project plans are currently under review by the New York State Department of Transportation (NYS DOT) for final approval to go out for re-bidding.  As noted below, the updated plans and specifications reflect the changes that were made to keep the project within the budgeted amount of the grant funding.  
    It is anticipated that the NYS DOT will give approval to re-bid the project in June of 2021.

    December 9, 2020
    The Village Board will discuss the Broadway Streetscape Project at the December 10, 2020, Work Session beginning at 7pm.  Please see the zoom access on the Village website  under meetings and agendas to join with any questions or concerns.  

    December 2020 Broadway Streetscape Project Update
    The Broadway Streetscape Improvement Project will be rebid in early 2021. The first round of bids received last spring were double the allotted budget.  McLaren Engineering, along with committee members and Village staff, worked to revise the original plans to fit the budget while still including streetscape and pedestrian safety improvements.
    How savings was achieved:
    • Sidewalks: New concrete sidewalks – and not exposed stone aggregate as in the original plan. All intersections with have ADA design from Cedar Hill Avenue to First Avenue.  Several sections of sidewalks which are in good condition and will not be replaced. 
    • Lighting: LED lighting will be installed using the current light pole fixtures and replacing the existing "cobra" lights with new luminaires. Using the existing light poles and improving the fixtures rather than installing new ornamental light poles will reduce the overall project cost by over $700,000.00                                
    • Crosswalks at bump out locations: will be painted with 8” wide white lines as required by DOT standards. Bump outs, which serve the dual purpose of improving pedestrian safety and create traffic calming, will be implemented at intersections based on the original design.
    • Landscaping and storm water mitigation: Selected tree pits and rain gardens will be included from the original design. However, final landscaping will be addressed separately. 
    • Budgeting:
      McLaren's construction estimate for this work is $2,171,000. This represents the total DOT + Village Funding Match for the construction of the project. The lowest of the three bids received last spring was just short of $5 million.  The Village Board rejected these bids and has approved rebidding of the project.

    • Next steps & anticipated time-line:
    • VB approval (Dec 2020)
    • DOT review and approval (Jan-Feb 2021)
    • RFP (March)
    • Received bids, award contract (April-May)
    • Ground breaking (June 2021)



    •  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.
