Take Me to the River: Transportation Plan

Location: West Harlem & Washington Heights, NY
Clients: City of New York, Office of Manhattan Borough President and NYS Department of State, Division of Coastal Resources
Subconsultant: Eng-Wong, Taub & Associates

This transportation plan will dramatically increase Waterfront Access Study for these communities to their waterfront parks and create a multi-modal network of circulation for pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists that strengthen connections between the wide array of historic, open space, and cultural resources.

Nautilus led a community-based planning process working with public agencies and over 25 local organizations, businesses, and residents. Coordinating 10 subconsulting firms, we developed a sustainable plan that will improve pedestrian connections and safety, add new bicycle routes, accelerate maintenance of public transportation, calm traffic, and reduce air pollution. The plan also identifies locations where underutilized street space could enhance adjacent public parks. In addition, we provided an implementation strategy including short and long-term phasing options, ballpark estimates, and potential funding sources.
