Broadway Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP)

The Village of Nyack is undertaking 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 potentially 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.

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
