Fort Lee Main Street Streetscape &
Main Street, which serves as the Borough of Fort Lee's Central Business District, (CBD) is immediately adjacent to the George Washington Bridge (GWB) approach roadways and toll plaza. The underlying planning of the infrastructure, traffic control, sewer separation and camera security system improvements were necessitated due to the project's close proximity to the Borough's major redevelopment area and the GWB, making it far more than a traditional Streetscape project.
The Streetscape features included widened sidewalks, low level ornamental lighting displayed in programmable multi-colors, landscaping, crosswalks, ADA compliant ramps, traffic signalization and intersection improvements. In addition to the enhancing of the aesthetics and functionality of the Central Business District, the Main Street Streetscape further included these unique features:
• Installation of a conduit for the security camera system in coordination with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
• Separation of 5,000 LF of 12-inch DIP sanitary force main of a combined sewer system, eliminating sewerage overflows into the Hudson River.
• An Adaptive Signal Control System, allowing for optimization of multiple signals.
• A Remote SCADA Control System upgrade for a nearby sanitary pump station.
