North Middletown Road Pedestrian Link
HVEA designed and will be performing construction inspection services for this project that will improve pedestrian safety along North Middletown Road in the Town of Orangetown. There have been a number of recent pedestrian injuries and fatalities in this corridor due to the lack of pedestrian infrastructure and safety measures.
In addition, the southern end of the project area generates considerable pedestrian activity due to the proximity of the Pearl River High School, Shop Rite, CVS and a variety of other stores and restaurants. This is a high profile project for the region with the objective to enhance the safety of the corridor without impacting the level of service for vehicular traffic.
HVEA performed an accident analysis of the corridor and modeled the improvements in SYNCHRO. The project required significant public involvement, reconfiguration of the roadway, sidewalk construction, mid-block crossings, and signal improvements. These improvements will increase pedestrian safety and connectivity and will complete a vital link to the Pearl River Business District.
This project includes:
- Complete street transformation
- Roadway diet
- Curb extensions (bump-outs)
- ADA/PROWAG curb ramps
- High visibility crosswalks

This project is funded with federal funds through the Transportation Enhancement Program and is being progressed under the oversight review of the NYSDOT Local Projects Group.
