Route 9A Promenade South


HAKS provided Construction Management services for a $70 million landscaped promenade along the southern portion of Route 9A between West Thames Street and Battery Place in Lower Manhattan. The completed Promenade has increased green space and provided safer and easier pedestrian access to nearby locations such as Battery Park and Robert F. Wagner Park and neighborhood historical and cultural landmarks such as Castle Clinton National Monument and the Museum of Jewish Heritage. 

Material testing involved supervising concrete precast plant inspection at the Stonecasts plant in Fort Edward, New York, and providing quality assurance for the fabrication of composite sections of two barrier concrete walls and other precast items. 

The NYSDOT made environmental performance commitments to the community, which included provisions for air monitoring, use of ultra-low sulfur fuel and the limitation of noise-intensive construction to certain hours of the day. Monthly public meetings were held to inform community representatives of construction progress and to address issues and concerns. Partnering meetings were held on a bi-weekly basis with other agencies to assure smooth construction coordination and to minimize adverse impacts to the movement of vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
