Motor Parkway Multi-Use Trail
Project Location: Eisenhower Park, East Meadow, Town of Hempstead
Client: Nassau County Department of Public Works
Nassau County was selected for Transportation Alternatives Grant (TAP) to construct a 1.4-mile section of the Long Island Motor Parkway Multi-Use Trail: Old Country Road – Salisbury Drive Segment that would complete a 10-mile continuous pedestrian and bicycle trail from the Nassau Hub to the historic Hamlet of Levittown. This project was federally funded and required the project’s development, design, and construction to follow State and Federal requirements as outlined in the Procedures for Locally Administered Federal Aid Projects (PLAFAP).
N+P prepared the Design Approval Document in accordance with the NYSDOT’s Project Development Manual (PDM); development of design plans conforming to the NYSDOT Highway Design Manual (HDM), NYSDOT standard Sheets and Regional Guide Sheets, and the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD); and prepared preliminary and final estimates utilizing NYSDOT specifications.

Care was taken to avoid impact to the many of the parks existing trees and any endangered/threatened species and plants.
