Project Update: Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge – Bicycle & Pedestrian Path

We at TWMLA are very excited as the Governor Mario M. Cuomo bridge project nears completion of the pedestrian and bicycle shared use path. The shared use path is a new 3.6 mile long connection over the Hudson River. TWMLA has been engaged in design and construction of the path and the bridge landing facilities since the early conception stage. Our team in collaboration with the Thruway Authority, and the construction contracting team, including HDR and and Wilkinson Eyre Architects, developed designs for a truly unique user experience awaiting visitors to the shared use path. A series of episodic experiences offered on the six distinct overlooks will tell a story of the bridge, its context and the surrounding communities and ecosystems.

When the path opens later in 2019 a new link between two communities sharing the banks of the Hudson River estuary will be realized. Along with a strengthened regional trail network extending from one of the world’s major metropolitan centers into the heart of upstate New York, this project is about bringing people together and offering new enriching social experiences. Stay tuned for more news…

In the meantime here is a project animation developed by the Thruway Authority that depicts the shared use path design.
