SELECTED PROJECT PORTFOLIO: transportation planning
new york, NY
PHA provided transportation planning, traffic engineering and schematic civil engineering services for the closure of East 25th Street between Third and Lexington Avenues to create a pedestrian plaza adjacent to the Baruch College campus. The project required preparation of a Community Reassessment, Impact and Amelioration (CRIA) Statement for the street closure, including a detailed assessment of the project’s impact on traffic and parking in the surrounding area. It also included extensive coordination with the community and review agencies, including NYCDOT, NYCDEP, FDNY and NYPD. The temporary plaza was implemented in 2012, and PHA is now providing providing civil engineering services to NYCDDC for the final design of the permanent plaza as a subconsultant to Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architecture.
