Prepared a plan to improve pedestrian and vehicular circulation along Business Route 422 between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. SSM designers worked with the Borough work group and project architect.

Our services included site plan design, analysis of issues and concerns, establishment of priorities, evaluation of alternative design options, design of bus pull off areas, pedestrian crosswalks, in-street crosswalk lighting, and streetscape improvements including street trees, planting strips, a planting divider in Business Route 422, distinctive light fixtures and patterned sidewalks.

During the process, SSM staff developed public support through interviews, public meetings and workshops.
