  7. 7. Utilize improved DOT bike lanes on Old Fulton Street</li></ul>FURMAN ST.<br />OLD FUTON ST.<br />WATER ST.<br />Recommendation : Give cyclists the choice to bike in the Park or on the street<br />
  8. 8. Limitations and Assumptions<br />Off-season construction still underway<br /> limited our potential to visualize alternatives<br />Unable to obtain user counts<br /> used Environmental Impact Statement projections <br />Existing structures had to be planned around<br /> alternatives must not alter park layout<br />
  9. 9. Research Methodology<br />Interviews with stakeholders and experts<br />Met community members and organizations<br />Site visits to NYC parks<br />Reviewed case studies and best practices<br /> <br />

  15. 15. Greenway users are recreational riders, tourists, and locals</li></ul>Image source: GWI<br />
  16. 16. Key Community Issues: Safety & Congestion<br /><ul><li>Bike lanes are supported by the Bloomberg administration but can be a contentious community issue
  17. 17. Greenway will draw traffic to the area and potentially decrease accessibility for residents
  18. 18. The community wishes to preserve the historical quality of the area</li></li></ul><li>Achieve Park goals through design<br />Researched best practices for:<br /><ul><li> Safety

  50. 50. APENDIX<br />
  51. 51. Costs - Alt 1: In the Park<br /><ul><li>Cost for 1 square foot of cobblestone including labor = $173 (Source DOT)
  52. 52. 1 block = 150 feet
  53. 53. 1 sign = $1,000 (Source BBP)</li></ul>Cobblestone path = $25,950<br />6 steel “bicycle” stamps and 3 signs = $9,000<br /> Total = $34,950<br />Cost entirely shouldered by BBP <br />
  54. 54. Costs - Alt 2: Upgrade DOT Lanes<br /><ul><li>Cost to construct 1 block of bike lane, labor included = $10,000 - $24,000 depending on scarification requirement (Source DOT)
  55. 55. 1 sign = $1,000 (Source BBP)</li></ul>DOT Bike Lane = $10,000 - $24,000<br />4 signs = $4,000<br /> Total = $14,000 - $28,000<br />Cost shouldered mainly by DOT<br />
  56. 56. Costs - Alt 3: Path hugs park curb<br /><ul><li>Cost to construct 1 block of bike lane, labor included = $10,000 - $24,000 depending on scarification requirement (Source DOT)
  57. 57. Cost for 1 square foot of cobblestone including labor = $173 (Source DOT)
  58. 58. 1 sign = $1,000 (Source BBP)</li></ul>DOT Bike Lane = $10,000 - $24,000<br />Cobblestones in park = $173*50 = $8,650<br />3 signs, 3 stamps = $6,000<br /> Total = $24,650 - $38,650<br />Cost split, but more costly for DOT<br />
  59. 59. Costs - Combination Recommendation<br /><ul><li>Cost to construct 1 block of bike lane, labor included = $10,000 - $24,000 depending on scarification requirement (Source DOT)
  60. 60. Cost for 1 square foot of cobblestone including labor = $173 (Source DOT)
  61. 61. 1 sign = $1,000 (Source BBP)</li></ul>150 ft Cobblestone path = $25,950<br />6 steel “bicycle” stamps and 4 signs = $10,000<br />Bike Lane = $10,000 - $24,000<br /> Total = $45,950 - $59,950<br />BBP Cost = $35,950 ; DOT Cost = $10,000 - $24,000<br />
