Garden Street Bridge

Alternatives for the Garden Street Bridge are rehabilitation of the existing stone masonry abutments and replacement of the bridge deck or replacement of the entire bridge. Either alternative will improve pedestrian and bicyclist safety, including new crosswalks and provide intersection improvements.

Washington Street Bridge

Alternatives for the Washington Street Bridge are rehabilitation of the existing stone masonry arch bridge or the replacement of the existing bridge with a new structure. The proposed new arch bridge will be designed in keeping with the aesthetic and historical nature of the site. Both alternatives will include the creation of a pocket park on the southwest corner of the arch and geometric improvements to the intersection of Fallkill Place, Verazzano Boulevard, and Brookside Avenue with Washington Street.
