Route 9 Pedestrian Improvements

Red Hook, NY

HVEA designed and provided construction inspection services for this project to construct 1,500 feet of new ADA/PROWAG compliant sidewalks along New York State Route 9 in the Town of Red Hook, NY. A key element in the design included a strategically located mid-block crossing on Route 9 within the Village Center. Providing a fully marked and signed crosswalk was needed to integrate the area and calm traffic. This location also warranted the use of rectangular rapid flashing beacon (RRFB) to alert drivers to slow down, thus further increasing pedestrian safety.

The project required a NYS highway work permit and completes a vital link connecting the Village of Red Hook to various pedestrian generators on Route 9.

This project included:

  • 1,500 feet of new sidewalk
  • Signing & pavement markings
  • NYSDOT highway work permit
  • Mid-block crossings
  • Rectangular rapid flashing beacons (RRFB)
  • Landscaping & lighting

This project was funded with federal funds through the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP). It was progressed under the oversight review of the NYSDOT Local Projects Group.
