Preliminary and Final Design Services for the Reconstruction of the Tillary Street Area

Tillary Street is a high-volume urban arterial located at the entrance/exit of the Brooklyn Bridge in the Borough of Brooklyn. The intersection of Tillary Street and Adams Street, at the entrance to the bridge, is a major traffic center for vehicles, bicyclists, and pedestrians; this project aims to rebuild this area and other portions of Tillary Street in order to provide a safe and welcoming gateway into the Borough of Brooklyn. The portion of Tillary Street between Cadman Plaza and Prince Street is being redesigned as part of a multi-million dollar capital reconstruction project aiming to improve street geometry, provide safer traffic conditions, and create a safe and friendly atmosphere for pedestrians and cyclists along this busy thoroughfare. The project involves complete street reconstruction, utility relocation, landscaping, and urban design. NYCDDC is looking to implement green infrastructure design to promote environmentally-conscious construction techniques and enhance the stormwater management in the project area.
