Bronx Harlem River Waterfront Bicycle and Pedestrian Study, 2006

Bronx Harlem River Waterfront Bicycle and Pedestrian Study, 2006The Bronx Harlem River Waterfront Bicycle and Pedestrian Study identifies bicycle and pedestrian connections to a section of the Harlem River waterfront in the southwest Bronx. This report includes the project area's existing conditions and future planned developments, with recommendations for improving non-vehicular access to the waterfront area. The implementation of the recommendations in this report would provide bicycle lanes and greenway segments for enhanced connections to existing and planned waterfront developments for bicyclists, pedestrians, joggers and rollerbladers, and would provide a connection between planned greenways to the north and east of the study area. 

The study emphasizes the continuity of two-way bicycle and pedestrian traffic along the route, compatibility between recommended links, proximity to the waterfront, and the safety of all users. The plan outlines both short- and long-term options. Wherever possible, the preferred action is to plan, design, and build a Class 1 separated off-street path close to the Harlem River waterfront. Where on-street, Class 2 striped bicycle lanes are preferred and recommended if deemed feasible.

The study is available as PDF Document one complete document (9.0 mb) or in parts in PDF format:
