Projects, Studies and Proposals
Active Studies & Proposals:
Hutchinson River Parkway Study

Hutchinson River Parkway Study
The New York City Department of City Planning - Bronx Borough Office and Transportation Division – has undertaken a transportation study of the Hutchinson River Parkway Corridor beginning in the spring of 2013. The corridor study area lies roughly along the Hutchinson River Parkway/ New England Thruway between Baychester Avenue/ Pelham Parkway and Ferry Point Park. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the transportation needs along and surrounding the Hutchinson River Parkway corridor with the goal of improving existing conditions and developing longer-term recommendations for improvements as the area continues to grow.

Sheridan Expressway-Hunts Point Land Use and  Transportation Study

Sheridan Expressway-Hunts Point Land Use and Transportation Study (SEHP)
The Department of City Planning is leading a community visioning process as part of an interdisciplinary study of the Sheridan Expressway and surrounding area, with special attention paid to Hunts Point access. The planning work was awarded a $1.5 million TIGER II grant from the US Department of Transportation in 2010. The planning work will help the city and state identify the best possible set of investments and improvements to the Bronx highway system and the complementary economic, zoning and housing plans for the surrounding communities.

Sustainable Communities
Sustainable Communities - Bronx Metro-North
The Department of City Planning is participating in an unprecedented, bi-state collaboration of cities, counties and regional planning organzations who have united  to form the New York-Connecticut Sustainable Communities Consortium.  The Consortium was awarded $3.5 million in funding in the inaugural year of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant Program. The consortium will undertake a combination of regionally and locally oriented initiatives to promote sustainable, transit-oriented development throughout the region. Initiatives DCP leads under the Sustainable Communities program include three studies: a coordinated neighborhood planning study in East New York, Brooklyn; an evaluation of  land use and transportation opportunities near Metro-North Stations in the Bronx; and several activities to advance citywide strategic planning efforts for building climate resilience.
