Sheridan-Hunts Point Land Use and Transportation Study
Introduction


Introduction | Context | Planning Process | Public Participation | Study Resources


On December 10, 2013, the Department of City Planning (DCP), the Department of Transportation (DOT), Economic Development Corporation (EDC), Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) and the Mayor’s Office of Long Term Planning and Sustainability (OLTPS) released The Sheridan Expressway Study: Reconnecting the Neighborhoods Around the Sheridan Expressway and Improving Access to Hunts Point.

The Sheridan Expressway-Hunts Point Land Use and Transportation Study (SEHP) was a two-year intensive, interdisciplinary study of the neighborhoods and infrastructure surrounding the Sheridan Expressway, funded by a grant from USDOT. The study strikes a balance between an increasingly vibrant residential area and the need to maintain efficient routes traveling to Hunts Point Market, the economic and employment core of the area.

The proposals developed, and ultimately the final recommendations, were the result of close consultation with a broad range of stakeholders over a two year period. The study team worked to strike a balance between an increasingly vibrant residential area and the need to maintain efficient routes for traffic traveling to Hunts Point, the economic and employment core of the area.

The City’s recommended scenario, the Modify-Combined, supports decades of efforts to restore vitality to this section of the South Bronx. The City selected this scenario based on extensive data collection and analysis, state-of-the-art transportation modeling, comprehensive community engagement, and frequent meetings with elected officials, community organizations, and other stakeholders. The Modify-Combined scenario is endorsed by political leaders and community organizations as a solution to the decades-long dispute over the future of the Sheridan Expressway.

Why Modify the Sheridan Expressway?

The study’s recommendations include improving public access to parks along the Bronx River currently cut off by the Expressway, increasing the safety of the pedestrian network, changing neighborhood zoning and improving the highway network. Implementation actions for the Department include zoning changes to encourage appropriate mixed-use development along Southern Boulevard and East Tremont Avenue, and, if recommended improvements to the at-grade portion of the Sheridan Expressway occur, a rezoning on waterfront sites along the Bronx River.
