Bronx River Greenway

In its entirety, the Bronx River Greenway is a multi-use path for bicycling, skating, running and walking that parallels the entire 23 miles of the Bronx River from its source at the Kensico Dam in Westchester County,NY to near its outlet at the East River in Hunts Point, Bronx. This section of the Greenway will connect three adjacent communities by two 173’-span and one 100’-span tied arch bridges with cable supported decks over the Bronx River and by one 87’-span truss bridge over Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor. It will provide 1.3 miles of lighted multi-use path and over two miles of pedestrian paths; floating docks for canoe/kayak portage with access ramps; and an artificial turf field for soccer or softball, a basketball court, playgrounds, a dog run and picnic areas.

WSP USA provided Design Development and Pre-Construction Design Documents, which reflect final decisions concerning position, form, dimensions, materials, details, and costs. Cost calculations at the end of this process indicate if the project is within the scope of the contract expectations. This project incorporated both custom design details and standard NYS DOT and NYC parks details.

WSP prepared the Design Report Environmental Assessment for this project in accordance with both State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA) and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requirements. The project was progressed as a SEQR Non-Type II (EA) action due to the significant Right-of-Way takings required as part of this action. WSP was responsible for the preliminary and final design of the Greenway including the preparation of survey base maps, right-of-way plans, horizontal and vertical alignment drawings, and structural designs of the retaining walls and Bridge Site Data packages.
