NV5 - Battery Place

Restoration of Battery Place

NV5 prepared conceptual, preliminary, and final design plans for the reconstruction of Battery Place in Lower Manhattan, New York. Though Battery Place is a City-owned street, it was the last segment of roadway to be rebuilt as part of the New York State Department of Transportation Route 9A Reconstruction project.

The new design removed parking areas separating the east- and west-bound roadways and reconfigured the roadway space to provide landscaped medians and additional pedestrian and green space on the south side of the street, which is adjacent to historic Battery Park. The design for the south side focused on a bus lay-by for tour buses and New York City Transit Authority express bus lines.

Sustainable design features included travel lane reduction, widened sidewalks, and the use of structural soil in continuous-connected tree planting trenches.
