The Village of Piermont is a Hudson River community and a regular thoroughfare for bicycle traffic. The forthcoming completion of the Mario Cuomo Bridge shared-use path is expected to spur a higher volume of bicycle traffic through the village. In anticipation, the Village of Piermont adopted a complete streets policy in August and invited UCS to conduct a complete street training and visioning workshop.
UCS designed three pilot projects at either end of the Village’s primary commercial corridor. In addition to diagramming proposed pilots on public right-of-way, UCS developed a comprehensive public outreach campaign, and designed a series of digital and on-site information systems to garner feedback on proposed improvements from the community. Data collected from these pilots combined with quantitative analysis will serve as the basis of a tactical plan outlining specific strategies to enable a comprehensive approach to complete streets.
This project is currently in development and will be complete in Fall of 2019.
