New Springville Greenway – Completed 2015
Construction on the 3.2-mile New Springville Greenway was completed in the summer of 2015. This path along the eastern edge of Freshkills Park creates north/south bike access parallel with Richmond Avenue by providing new asphalt pavement, concrete sidewalk reconstruction and improvements, and associated drainage systems, incorporating the most sustainable techniques in bio-swale design and construction.
This project is made possible with the support of a Congestion, Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) grant from the Federal Highway Administration.
